British public ‘lack awareness’ of smart cities


Only 18 percent of the British public has heard of a smart city, according to research carried out by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET). Awareness of smart cities is lowest among those aged over 65 (6 percent) and highest among those aged 18 to 34 (37 percent). Yet, one third of respondents were unable to select the correct definition of a smart city from a list of options with 8 percent believing the term related to a city’s proportion of universities and colleges. A further 5 percent saw it as “a city that has a strict cleaning regime for its buildings, roads and public places”. The research is part of a new IET report, Smart Cities – Time to involve the people, which also reveals a lack of consumer consensus on the relevance of technologies typically associated with smart cities.
