The examples of European (see the WTCA cases: 1, 2) and Asian countries that have transformed life and work environment with the help of "smart technologies", increased energy efficiency, environmental friendliness and security of their cities, Moscow, Kazan, Yekaterinburg and a number of other Russian subjects  inspired to accumulate experience, test and integrate "smart” technologies, transport systems and video surveillance systems. And today Russia has  declared a large-scale introduction of smart technologies in the life of its cities.

In the spring of 2018, the Ministry of Construction and Housing of the Russian Federation selected 18 cities to start the all-Russian project "Smart City"  It will affect the areas of innovative urban planning and housing and communal services, traffic management, security, and orientation in space.
