• Conurets

Every object on the surface of the Earth has a location. Geofencing technologies associate different attributes to the specific object and its location along with collecting data for the objects on the city map and enabling municipalities to make better or data-driven decisions. When it comes to urban planning and smart city developments, the role of Geofencing or geospatial technologies is quite significant. The majority of the smart city solutions or developments are based on geolocation data and technologies like IoT and AI only meet the expected outcomes if they operate in synchronization with the geolocation tech.

So how does Geofencing technology empower smart city developments? Before proceeding to the use cases let's see how the cities are using the Geofencing technologies to become smarter.
