SMART CITY CONCEPT WITHIN SELECTED COUNTRIES
This manuscript deals with the issue of the Smart City concept in the capitals of selected European countries, which are the Slovak Republic, the Czech Republic, and Austria. This scientific manuscript defines technical terms such as Smart city and also the whole concept of the Smart City. An overview of Smart City services is also presented. The analysis of the current state of the article is focused on the Index Cities in Motion 2018 which evaluates the current development concept of a Smart City in selected major cities such as Vienna, Prague, and Bratislava. Based on the analysis, we wanted to verify whether the Slovak Republic is ranked in the first half of the surveyed countries within the Index Cities in Motion.This hypothesis has been confirmed.Within these selected capital cities, we focused on mobile applications, which are provided under the three chosen areas of the concept of a Smart City such as transportation services, environmental services, and real-time localization services. Subsequently, we found that most applications in the countries under review are implemented in the transport sector. Subsequently, we focused on the number of downloads and the cost of each app. We've also researched apps through Google Play.Based on a detailed analysis, we defined the advantages and disadvantages of the three most frequently used areas of the Smart City concept.
