Introduction

The study also provides detailed quantitative analysis surrounding the major technologies encompassed in the safe city space.The data presented includes traditional security and surveillance equipment (for example, cameras and associated hardware), and other technologies, including analytics, storage and control room technologies, used for dispatching personnel resources to an incident.

Additional quantitative analysis provides perspective on the suitability of various countries’ readiness to adopt a safe city initiative.

According to the World Bank, over 50% of the world population lives in cities, and this trend is expected to continue. More concentrated populations put greater pressure on infrastructure, resources, and the security systems of the respective cities around the world and leaders are being pushed to invest in solutions to combat these challenges using a method that is efficient, scalable, and sustainable.

For this reason, the smart city concept was developed. IHS Markit defines a smart city project as one that uses an integrated information and communications technology (ICT) system to improve efficiency, manage complexity, and enhance citizen quality of life through sustainable city operation improvements. The smart city concept covers six major areas: safe city; mobility and transport; energy and sustainability; social infrastructure, structures, and physical infrastructure and smart economy.
