The Digital City is a city connected to the net, equipped with technological platforms for information and communications management that can enable the Internet of Things. These platforms also make it possible to process huge amounts of data and information to offer new services to the inhabitants of urban areas and new functionality for the management of the urban environment.
Digitalisation is a key factor in making cities more sustainable, enabling the development of new forms of urban logistics and mobility, such as electric mobility and car sharing.
Digitalisation also encourages the introduction of new safety and renewable source technologies. It also promotes the introduction of systems for withstanding extreme meteorological events.
