Right, so a "Smart City" can offer me:
intelligent streetlights activated by movement
No thanks, I like to see where I'm going to, what's way ahead of me. That's just a simple safety thing.
Don't exist yet outside of private, limited trials
What's the powertrain on a bus owned by a private transit company got to do with "Smart City" apart from something the council can stick in a brochure?
and cars which could be ordered by smartphones.
That's Uber, that is. Also other taxi companies that you can, you know, phone. From your smartphone.
It's no wonder ordinary people don't know what a "Smart City" is because the people trying to sell us this shit don't know either.
