Abstract: As cities around the world are unevenly waking up after a pandemic coma, cities are seeking opportunities to continue evolving toward being ‘smart.’ Cities may wish to take a new approach to provide services that meet the goals of the city and needs of the residents in new and innovative ways. The implementation of such approaches will define the new “smart city.” 

We propose a human-centric model to help city authorities to make decisions with human needs in mind. Such a human-centric model will help identify and classify technological investments with the greatest positive impact for their residents. This presentation will introduce this human-centric model, the INCOSE-TUS Smart Cities Reference Model.
