“The Smart City concept includes not only smart apartments, electric transport, but also the use of innovative technologies to help people with disabilities. For example, tactile roads have been installed for blind people in the city, which help them navigate and reduce the risk of danger when moving,” said Sokhbet Amanov, chief engineer of the Turkmen State Design Association of the Ministry of Construction and Architecture of Turkmenistan.

In new buildings, everything is for the convenience of residents. Such is the city. Traffic lights will be able to respond to changes in city traffic, parking lots will be able to signal motorists about free spaces, and garbage cans will inform public utilities about their filling. To preserve the environment, solar panels and wind generators have been installed, electric buses and electric taxis have been purchased.
