Making smart fair: building inclusive, fair and sustainable transport for cities of the future
This paper examines ‘smart cities’, which are emerging in recent years as a technology-led response to problems facing the world’s conurbations as they grow in number, size and complexity. Smart cities are intended to harness and harmonise technological innovations – especially Big Data and the Internet of Things (IoT) – to improve infrastructures and outcomes in terms of efficiency, sustainability and citizen engagement. The main focus of this paper is on smart transport or ‘Intelligent Transport Systems’ (ITS), as a key or perhaps even the predominant element of a smart city. We critically review current orthodoxies on smart city transport and raise important new questions on gendered inequalities and sustainability.

Abstract

This paper examines ‘smart cities’, which are emerging in recent years as a technology-led response to problems facing the world’s conurbations as they grow in number, size and complexity. Smart cities are intended to harness and harmonise technological innovations – especially Big Data and the Internet of Things (IoT) – to improve infrastructures and outcomes in terms of efficiency, sustainability and citizen engagement. The main focus of this paper is on smart transport or ‘Intelligent Transport Systems’ (ITS), as a key or perhaps even the predominant element of a smart city. We critically review current orthodoxies on smart city transport and raise important new questions on gendered inequalities and sustainability.
