Breakthroughs in Smart City Implementation addresses a wide variety of present social, political and technological problems. Green and long-lasting solutions will be needed in the coming years in areas to improve air quality, the quality of life of residents in cities, traffic congestion among other concerns.

Two CONASENSE (the Society on Communication, Navigation, Sensing and Services) branches, established in China and in India, report on initiatives needed to overcome the obvious shortcomings at present. This book contains those reports, an introductory chapter concerning the ‘Smart City’ from the CONASENSE perspective, a chapter showing that not technology but the people in the cities are most important and a chapter on recent results and prospects of “Human in the Loop” in smart vehicular systems.

Topics include: Smart Cities, Intelligent Services, Big Data Analysis, Information Technology, Internet of Things, Industrial Upgrading, Social Networks, Human in the loop.
