The analog life is no longer appealing. We all now wish for the smart, digital life to make everything easier, less expensive to manage and convenient. In a time when we’ve got smartphones, smartwatches, smart fridge, smart grids, smart TV and smart homes, why can’t we have a smart city?
Dubai will be blazing the trail as it becomes the first smart city running on blockchain and smart contracts. Imagine a city which is not only connected to the internet, but also ‘smart’ enough to process activities like visa applications and reach intelligent decisions. For a frequent business traveler, the long wait at the embassy will become history. Robotina, a Slovenia-based company, providing comprehensive automation solutions with an IoT focus, will be playing some big roles and laying down the tracks in this innovative transformation.
