Most of us will have heard something about Smart cities, but perhaps are unsure what the term really means? Using examples from ‘cutting edge’ research which we are conducting here at the University of Stirling, where we are uniquely looking at Smart cities from the ‘lens’ of the citizen, we will try to help to fill some of those gaps.
