Smart Cities are urban agglomerations, which use modern information and communication strategies, sustainable technology and socio-scientific methods in order to pave the way into a post-fossil society. A vital element for a smart urban development is therefore coordination in the areas of mobility, energy and eGovernance. In smart cities, individual mobility is predominantly public and eco-friendly. The city becomes again a meeting zone.
