Smart cities and the future of mobility

The Deloitte Review issue 20 features Deloitte’s latest thinking on crucial business issues. The current edition focuses on two key trends and analyzes their management implications: smart cities and the future of mobility.

Introduction

Will anyone still drive cars in years to come, or will the cars do all the driving themselves? How could technology transform our urban environments? And what does it really mean for a city to be “smart”? Deloitte Review’s 20th issue looks ahead to explore two science-fiction futures that are fast becoming reality: smart cities and the future of mobility.

SPECIAL SECTION: SMART CITIES

Making cities smarter: How citizens’ collective intelligence can guide better decision making

By William D. Eggers, James Guszcza, and Michael Greene

No city planner can match the expertise dispersed among citizens. Tapping into residents’ preferences and local knowledge can yield solutions that even the best planning can’t match.
