Abstract

A smart city is one that is highly developed, innovative, environment-friendly, and incorporates relevant aspects of the economy, technology, mobility, quality of life and other aspects that contribute to the well-being of its residents. To achieve the status of a smart city, several requirements, criteria or indicators need to be considered. Strategic decisions by planners of a smart city play an important role in determining how the city uses resources and opportunities through the harnessing of modern technology to build a framework of innovation that nurtures a healthy society in an economy that is dynamic and environment-conscious. Smart cities focus on various elements of humanity, learning, the environment, technological infrastructure, social development, and urban growth. The aim of this study is to examine these requisites of a smart city, and to use the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) methodology in assigning weightage to each element that is considered essential to its development. Smart environment and smart mobility were found to be the top two important factors in the successful building of a smart city. The actual values that shape smart cities are based on a balance of factors such as smart environmental practices, smart governance, smart living, smart mobility, smart people, and smart economy. These principal key elements work together to exploit the technologies that help bring about the realization of a smart city.
