The extensive growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) is giving the direction toward the smart cities. The smart city is preferred because it improves the living standard of the people of the society and provides quality in the services. These services are parking, health, transport, water, power, environment, and so forth. The assorted environment of IoT and smart city is challenged by data processing, decision-making, and notification management. In this research article, specific architecture is proposed for data processing and notification management in the smart city environment using IoT. The processing is carried out with Hadoop server using authentic dataset, and notification management is done based on ontology.
