All smart city applications according to the order of priority would be to provide express Institution in Turkey, gave the following information:
“I want to explain the importance of prioritization with an example. If the primary problem in Artvin is the flood disaster due to the extreme precipitation caused by climate change, we will shift our work in this direction. We will solve Artvin's traffic problem as a secondary problem. We will follow the precipitation amount instantly with the smart systems we will establish in line with our Black Sea Climate Change Action Plan. According to the results we obtained, we will install smart grid systems. As in the case of Artvin, we will produce smart solutions for disaster and emergency management, especially earthquake, in all our cities. We will implement applications such as disaster management applications, smart emergency response system, smartphone disaster mode for every city. If the transportation problem of the city is in the first place, we will put forward transportation, and if it is health, we will take the health forward.

Maturity levels of cities will be measured with IQ tests
By determining the maturity level of our cities with all its components, we will create the provincial Livable City Index. The Agency stated that 87% of municipalities do not have a monitoring system for smart cities.
Minister Institution continued as follows: “We will measure the maturity levels of our cities with the IQ tests we will conduct and create the provincial viable City Index. With regular measurements, we will monitor the changes in our cities and update the needs. I want to give an example here. For example, the cost of collecting and transporting waste in Istanbul is over 1 billion liras. With intelligent waste systems, that is, with intelligent systems, software, sensors that measure the fill rates and separation rates of garbage containers, we can greatly reduce this cost. In addition, as a country, we can save 45 percent in annual waste collection and transportation costs with smart waste collection systems. Loss leakage rates can reach up to 50 percent in water networks. With smart systems, we can reduce this rate to 5 percent. This activity is also the primary need of our country, which suffers from water stress. We have the goal of increasing our water recycling rates from 1 to 5 percent. We are now a country that uses 1500 cubic meters of water per capita and we are poor in water. And this figure will decrease to 1200 cubic meters, we will start to experience water shortages. We have seen how important this work is with the prediction of water wars in the world in the 2050s. ”

We will also build our TOKİ projects, which have a high number of residences, according to the smart city concept.

If we can make the right production and investment, we can contribute at least 25-30 billion liras annually to our economy. This is our goal. For this reason, we are starting activities related to the market environment required to meet human resource, technology and investment demands in the smart city area.
