Design and Implementation of Smart City Applications Based on the Internet of Things

Haider Th. Salim Alrikabi, Nabaa Ali Jasim


Since the emergence of the Coronavirus and its declaration as a global pandemic, the world has changed all sectors radically. Covid-19 has caused a very strong effect on daily life and adaptation to new ways of learning, working, and communicating. The smart city is one of the most important solutions that enable us to go on with daily life during the pandemic and beyond. The smart city employs the current technology and smart solutions to serve the community, and improve the services provided to the people, particularly in vital sectors such as health, education, electricity, transportation, communications, and others. This article deals with two innovative applications for the Internet of things in smart cities: The first refers to designing an intelligent health monitoring system, which aims to reduce the spread of Coronavirus infection from people to the medical staff, as well as reduce work pressure on the medical staff. The second application refers to monitoring electrical energy consumed by measuring and monitoring electrical parameters and energy consumption. In addition, it helps us to know the power line trespasser. Both systems are implemented by using sensors to gather data in real-time and then transmit it to the server.
