To speed up promoting a smart city and IoT applications and innovations, the government finished deploying the scope of communications. The scope can cover the entire WSNs in IoT (LoRa) across Taipei City. People expected that the government would display all types of innovations and applications on the international stage at the Universiade 2017 and WCIT 2017 by opening up the city to serve as a field for experimental use. It can bring in sufficient energy for research and development.

The smart city construction base comes from a fact to see if the government can really solve the problems that most citizens encounter in their everyday life. Faced with the trend of Internet of Things (IoT) and data economy, it needs to build trust in every citizen using the power of private enterprises through collaboration and participation. Via an integration of every technology and sensory orientation, the government may exert its competitive advantages to enhance value-added applications of each municipal administration. Taipei City citizen’s kindness usually makes the foreign tourists feel at home. However, the 1999 hotline of the city government provides considerate service and it is obvious to everyone. Therefore, the government provides a wireless network infrastructure and constructs a new vision for all people in terms of everyday needs including food, clothing, housing, transportation, education and entertainment as well as social security and energy consumption management through a citizen membership platform. It can definitely make Taipei City a new exemplar model with the breadth of internationalization and localization as a smart city. The government can expect a better life for its citizens in the future.

The Smart Handheld Device (SHD) has become a trend. It is also a chance for information software vendors (ISV) and enterprises in other domains to add to the business opportunities generated by hardware vendors in the electronics industry. Its key point depends on the App on SHD that triggers the new next consumption revolution. Therefore, using this location based system (LBS) establishment on the city Wi-Fi value-added platform can allow future online or offline connections and interactions so that information and communication technology (ICT) can combine with commercial services to create more business opportunities and applications via a more convenient service model. If the future city can make use of this concept of cloud service and Internet of Things (IoT), it can effectively increase value added and new business opportunities. Furthermore, it can effectively reduce government expenditure and subsidy, and build a creative consumer-shopping model.
