In an article published in 2014, the IHS outlined what they consider a roadmap for how SmartCities at home and abroad will multiply over the course of the next decade. At the time, it was believed the number of Smart Cities would rise fourfold over the course of twelve years, starting in 2013. With four years down, are we any closer? That’s for you to decide.
Nonetheless, the IHS’s plan is as valid today as it was during it’s publishing in understanding the future of SmartCity’s, both in America and around the world.
