Fastags, NFC-enabled universal travel accounts, e-hailing services, computer-aided transportation, and smart parking and very recent advancement of autonomous driving technology have enabled smart mobility a dream come true.
- Data Security: A smart city is primarily based on the user data collected through technology. And so, it is highly susceptible to be exposed to wrong means. It, hence becomes imperative to incorporate proper measures to prevent and control unauthorised use of public data.
