"The concept of a "senseable city" has been developed by a Massachusetts Institute of Technology lab. For several years, this multidisciplinary department, based in the prestigious Cambridge University, has turned to new technologies to create tools to respond to global inhabitants' needs and yearnings.

In a near future, smart cities will have to adapt to their inhabitants' requests to serve them. This notion of ”senseable city” – whose name emphasises the human aspect more than the term “smart cities” – can only function if its inhabitants take part in this evolution."
