This article “A Review of Smart Cities Based on the Internet of Things Concept” by Talari et al. (2017) provides an inclusive overview of the concept of the smart city through the perspective of different applications, benefits, and advantages of the Internet of Things. The aim of this review article was to explore variant specifications and features of IoT systems, along with the efficient incentives for utilizing them.
With the expansion of smart meters, like the Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI), and the Internet of Things (IoT), each smart city is equipped with various kinds of electronic devices. Therefore, equipment and technologies enable us to be smarter and make various aspects of smart cities more accessible and applicable. The goal of the current paper is to provide an inclusive review on the concept of the smart city besides their different applications, benefits, and advantages. In addition, most of the possible IoT technologies are introduced, and their capabilities to merge into and apply to the different parts of smart cities are discussed. The potential application of smart cities with respect to technology development in the future provides another valuable discussion in this paper. Meanwhile, some practical experiences all across the world and the key barriers to its implementation are thoroughly expressed.
