By 2030, the United Nations targets the development of smart cities that incorporate advanced communication methods, such as 6G wireless, to enable real-time data acquisition and utilization from distributed sensors. However, smart cities must also work within the limitations of available resources, which presents a variety of challenges. To overcome the challenges of smart city implementation, researchers are exploring new techniques and technologies such as 6G wireless, Intelligent Reflecting Surfaces (IRS), Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), and AI-assisted wireless communications.The use of 6G wireless technology can significantly improve network performance by optimizing energy consumption, spectral efficiency, latency, and other critical metrics. Meanwhile, Intelligent Reflecting Surfaces (IRS) can be employed to enhance wireless signal coverage and quality by reflecting signals towards their intended destination. Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) can also be used to create wireless communication networks in hard-to-reach areas, improving connectivity and coverage. Furthermore, AI-assisted wireless communication is another promising technique for smart cities. With the help of machine learning algorithms, wireless networks can be optimized for traffic management, security, and other critical parameters. By integrating these technologies, smart cities can create a robust wireless communication infrastructure that meets the demands of an increasingly connected and data-driven world.
