Smart Cardiff explores the use of technology and data to enhance the lives of the people living, working and visiting the Capital.
The ‘draft’ smart city roadmap has been designed to be flexible and will act as a catalyst for collaboration, innovative thinking, better designed services and allow the city to exploit advances in technology.
It is important to point out that our smart city approach is ambitious but attempts to avoid the pitfalls of the early smart city initiatives. It does not involve huge centralisation projects or advocate the use of technology with no real purpose. Instead, we intend to learn from other cities experiences, work with our citizens and target initiative’s that will deliver high value solutions for the people who live, work and visit the city.
Cardiff’s Smart City Roadmap has five missions. These missions promote collaborative working, advocate data-driven decision making, aim to expand connectivity, seek to improve health and well-being, enhance mobility, and will help to ensure that Cardiff continues to be a sustainable city.
