In an IOT based smart city, the most astonishing and, the most reflective component would be a much more efficient water supply. This kind of water supply treatment plant that would be established will be a much more advanced version of the already existing kinds. This water supply would help many people across the globe to get access to clean, drinking water and sanitation. Also, in such a city there would be provided an innovative solution to the huge traffic congestion being faced these days that leads to delays in reaching to work, rash driving and results in huge chaos and accidents. Thus, it would be great to kept in mind to provide a mid-way out to deal with these traffic issues in a more reliable and efficient way. We would provide a more reliable public transportation. Public transportation these days are the most relied means of conveyance for people living in all parts of the world. Thus, we would build up a more reliable public transport structure that would be effortless. This would minimize the deals, difficulties and would maximize the ease for the travelers. The next thing would be to make energy efficient buildings that will aim at minimizing the wastage of energy of the entire community. These buildings would run on least amount of possible energy (for e.g. solar energy) resulting in minimum loss. Safety is a major concern these days. There are lot of safety issues popping up in all parts of the world. Thus, in our model, we would provide an improved public safety that links back to the infrastructure, buildings, lifts, escalators, elevators, public transportation etc. Thus, with improved public safety, all these factors would be procured. However, with all these aims being enforced in the city, there would come up a lot of challenges that would be needed to countered. The system software that would be the base of framework of this IOT based smart city, would be vulnerable to hacks, system failures i.e. trojans, malware and viruses. This would result in privacy and security concerns but obvious, and also difficulties in interoperability, but suitable specific would be procured to counter these issues as well.
