More than 50% of today’s people live in cities. By 2050, about 75% of the world’s population will work, live, and commute in and around urban centers (Ritchie and Roser, 2019). When the world economy expands by just 3% per year, urbanization-related firms can yearly increase the revenues by more than 15% (Baron et al., 2016). The cities of the future are going to be smart. I.e., urban areas that use electronic methods and sensors to collect data and efficiently manage assets, resources, and services. In smart cities, the internet of things network is used to optimize city operations, services and connect with citizens.
