2 Background With the rapid development of information technologies since the beginning of the 21 century, intelligent terminals and applications have become increasingly powerful. New patterns of large-scale production, sharing and use come into reality, which have greatly changed the way people study, work and live. A new round of information revolution has arrived represented by internet, cloud computing, internet of things and other technology leaps. Since the smart planet, a highly efficient, interconnected and environment-friendly concept, was brought up, there is a boom of building smart city initiatives. The introduction of new generations of internet, cloud computing, intelligent sensing, telecommunication, remote control, satellite positioning and GIS have made Smart realizable from technologic aspect, through identifying, positioning, following-up, controlling and managing every possible object. Building smart cities is also the objective requirement to transform the city development pattern and to enhance the efficiency of urban management. As the acceleration of urbanization, cities are endowed with unprecedented power and come to people s attention. At the same time, cities are faced with such challenges as environment pollution, traffic jams, scarcity of energy, shortage of affordable housing, high unemployment rate and diseases. How to tackle these challenges and realize sustainable development have be one of the priorities in many city plans. Smart City is the future.

In recent years, many countries and cities are taking initiatives to interpret the real meaning of Smart City, and bring building Smart City into their economic and social development overall plan, in accordance with their individual characteristics. 2
