The Smart City concept is gaining popularity due to involving various technologies in public places in order to satisfy the citizens' needs. However, the success of the smart city paradigm is linked to the treatment and management of the amount of real time data, which can be at the moment most effectively approached with the help of cloud platforms. In this paper, we aim at discussing the most promising mobile cloud and data transmission technologies that are expected to make the city more “smart” and more affordable for the end-users. Hence, we also discuss Li-Fi as a future transmission of data through illumination that can enhance further the communication in a smart city as well as guarantee a wireless connectivity that meets the requirements of the citizens. Finally, we discuss the challenges and opportunities of these new technologies for the scientific community and suggest the future research directions that should go hand in hand with their deployment.
To sum up, in this paper we discuss some of the most advanced technologies that are expected to make cities more “smart” in order to improve the life quality of citizens. Further, we highlight Li-Fi as a promising future eco-friendly technology in wireless communication for the smart city, and we discuss the research questions associated with the evolution of smart city.
We strongly believe that the “smart city” paradigm is an umbrella term for various technologies that will continue growing in terms of infrastructure and communications, and that although the industry and real deployment of these technologies is progressing in enormous speed, the scientific community should follow all these inventions with the studies of implications and consequences that these technologies could have on different aspects of the future life, and start with searching for the solutions before the problems are encountered in practice.
