Smart Infrastructure: A new style of infrastructure composed of conventional infrastructure and information and communication technologies (ICTs). Smart infrastructure refers to an efficient and highly functional infrastructure accomplished by ICT-based monitoring, control, and management.

Smart Community: An integration of smart infrastructures implemented in a certain region.


A smart community is an integration of smart infrastructures implemented in a certain region. Each smart infrastructure may provide dedicated merits. However, the essential merit of a smart community is community big data, which covers all infrastructures. To pursue the effective use of the community, big data is the key to the success of smart...
