- Traffic management (or a seeming lack thereof)
- Public transit
- Crime prevention
- Waste removal
- Street lighting
- Other infrastructure
Every single one of these things can be enhanced in fundamental ways with wireless connectivity.
And these fundamental changes pass convenience and savings directly to the taxpayer. Through advanced water leakage detection and repair policies, Tokyo was able to reduce its water leakage rate from 20% to 3.6%. This means 1 in 5 gallons of water was wasted by leakage before their initiative and afterwards, it was 1 in 277. That is a pretty dramatic result. Imagine those kinds of results cascading across all of the services discussed. Parking that is practically seamless. Traffic jams being a rarity rather than expected. Reductions in taxpayer dollars spent rather than annual increases. These are all achievable, and the technology is ready for it today.
