Provides powerful insights into the communication networks and services needed to make smart cities a reality 

With the increasing worldwide trend in population migration into urban centers, we are beginning to see the emergence of the kinds of mega–cities which were once the stuff of science fiction. It is clear to most urban planners and developers that accommodating the needs of the tens of millions of inhabitants of those megalopolises in an orderly and uninterrupted manner will require the seamless integration of and real–time monitoring and response services for public utilities and transportation systems. Part speculative look into the future of the world s urban centers, part technical blueprint, this visionary book helps lay the groundwork for the communication networks and services on which tomorrow s smart cities will run.

Written by a uniquely well–qualified author team, this book provides detailed insights into the technical requirements for the wireless sensor and actuator networks required to make smart cities a reality. A comprehensive guide for researchers, industrial planners, development engineers, and urban planners, among others, Transportation and Power Grids in Smart Cities: Communication Networks and Services

  • The only book covering both transport systems and electricity grids as they relate to communication networking
  • Discusses the technologies required for the integration of smart city power grids and intelligent transportation systems in a coherent and consistent manner
  • Addresses an array of smart city building blocks, including smart power grids (SGs), intelligent transportation systems (ITS), internet–of–things (IoT), electric vehicles (EVs), and wireless sensor networks (WSNs)
  • Bridges the divide between the fields of power systems, wireless communication, and city planning

Its broad, yet in–depth coverage makes Transportation and Power Grids in Smart Cities: Communication Networks and Services required reading for researchers, development engineers, urban planners, and public policymakers, as well as undergraduate and graduate students of electrical power systems, transportation management, wireless communication, civil engineering, and sustainable urban planning.
