Liveable Sydney Smart City Research

Many ‘Smart City’ initiatives are either technology driven or a ‘top down’ rather than a ‘bottom up’ process. This has lead to many unsuccessful projects where billions of dollars has been spent on ‘smart’ technology that either reminds people of ‘Big Brother’ gathering data on you or is seen as a disconnect from the basic needs of the community.


The three main drivers for a Smart City should be sustainability, resilience and liveability – and at the core of this are the citizens.
