According to the actual applications of intelligent urban agglomerations, shared data plays an essential role in the evolution. We can observe the following impacts, which use the Internet as a major medium:
Sharing economy. It integrates idle items or resources (such as bicycles, cars), so that people can enjoy them with a much lower cost than otherwise.
Intelligent transportation. Advanced data transmission, electronic sensing, satellite navigation and positioning technology are effectively integrated in the transportation management. Various technologies support a wide range, real-time, accurate and efficient integrated transportation system.
Intelligent manufacturing. The new industrial revolution, known as Industry 4.0, is underway. It offers a greater flexibility and efficiency in operations and resource allocations. In intelligent manufacturing, networks play an important role with real-time information communication.
Intelligent medical service. A typical method taking the advantages of both online and offline service is to combine traditional medical industries and the Internet. It greatly reduces the difficulties for population, and provides more efficient and rational medical resource allocations.
Intelligent trade. Online shopping and payment have changed people’s shopping behavior, which also contributes to an explosive demand in logistics industry. Intelligent logistics can well enhance the transportation abilities for fragmental logistics via intelligent network systems.
