I started writing notes for my next installation in the Smart city posts, and suddenly realised that I had missed out an important step, that of the Industrialist, and here I mean all offices, and industry as a whole.

How they perceive a smart city is a totally different to that of a dweller, their needs are some what industrial.

Take for instance the small Architects office, their need is general Email, and file shunting, plus it now seem telephone as we switch to video conferencing, and Skype, plus the need for some pretty hefty photos being sent and received. Their choice of an office is now linked directly to broadband, with successful business being almost dependant on fast broadband, as our industry becomes more and more electronic. Second are good rail and bus links, with parking a high third, and depending on the industry, three phase supply.

But look at the other extreme of a factory, then a smart city is some what different, for them control of import and export of their delivery fleet might be considered a high importance, and knowledge of the transport hubs, motorway and rail movements, the best time to leave, looking at traffic movements. Wake and their unique crowd source information system, linked to city data is certainly a way forward and this will be discussed further in the final article of the city councils view of a smart city.

But back to the industry view, and I dare say internet might well be just as important, with modern manufacturers seeking to add cad and all the other video and conference facilities to their workers and for the fist time its here we see perhaps the use of Augmented reality AR, and fast broadband being important to modern manufacturing, with manufacturing data being brought in from other plants or the cloud to overlay on a production line, take a car plant like landcover, with all the sensors and information flowing from and to a line.

Again, we as the Architectural profession can and should take interest in all of this, as we plan and layout these zones, we add 3phase, we add sewers, we add road infrastructure, so designing and adding space for an ever evolving internet connection is part of our remit.

Adding a high speed backbone to these areas marks the true smart city, and as industrial and office zones are added by planners then this must be, and is why I decided to add this section before I tackle the larger question of the City council and their perception of a Smart City, for as I said before its they who will control the choice and installation, and its the planners who can make or break these zone and its a massive section, the more research I do the more I have to step back from this final section and just keep reviewing as a whole, the very concept of a smart city from the councils point of view, its complex, and brings together so many concepts and facilities, all the other views pale into insignificance.
