City SMART: City Society Made Accessible by Rethinking Technologies

This Exhibit highlights the principle of accessibility for Smart City planners and managers.

        Accessibility in the smart city means taking the practical steps to make the city’s spaces, its amenities, jobs, and services available to all its stakeholders. For the smart city to be successful residents, visitors and commuters need to be able to access appropriate transport options, usable accommodation, shopping choices, and work, and to be safe when in the city. The accessibility principle means making all these agreed-upon functions of a city available to those who are often excluded because of physical and/or emotional limitations. This includes those with impaired vision, hearing, mobility, or other constraints on the actions of daily living.
