Submission + - Cities may get smart with their own OS->

CProgrammer98 writes: BBC news reports that cities may soon get their own OS. The Urban OS works just like a PC operating system but keeps buildings, traffic and services running smoothly.

The software takes in data from sensors dotted around the city to keep an eye on what is happening.

In the event of a fire the Urban OS might manage traffic lights so fire trucks can reach the blaze swiftly.
