smart city features

Using the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) paradigm of abstract “layers,” the notion of a “Smart City” has been developed. After gathering the data from various sources in a smart city, it goes through the perception and network layers before it finally gets to the application layer. After collecting this information, city application systems can operate the city’s various infrastructures more effectively.

Within the perception layer, sensors all across the smart city gather information. Cameras, radio frequency identification devices, and global positioning system receivers are all sensors that might be used to collect this information. The network layer gets information from the perception layer, which is sent wirelessly. It is the job of the network layer to send the data from the perception layer to the application layer. Since the network layer relies on a city’s communication infrastructure to transmit data, it is vulnerable to attack and must ensure the security of any sensitive information it collects. Application layer processes network-layer data. The application layer analyses information to make judgments on how to manage the city’s physical infrastructure.

The Smart City Application will facilitate the several above-given features to its residents. By using this application, the residents will be at ease because the Smart Application will comprise every possible feature.
