The population of many cities in the world is increasing over time, which leads to urban sprawl and an increase in energy consumption and polluting gases, especially in urban areas. Indeed, energy consumption and pollutant gases threaten human life. On the other hand, technology has affected every aspect of our life. To prevent such threats, cities must be smart so that they can be managed in a smart way. In this sense, the main objective of this paper is to realize a prototype of an Internet of Things (IoT) system to save human life while preserving the environment. This system is called I-CITY and incorporates Smart Parking, Intelligent fire detection system with automatic fire extinguisher and quality monitoring system around the city environment. This invented device is made up of web access that gathers, sends, and processes data from their environment using embedded systems including processors, sensors, and communication gear. Finally, I-CITY solves parking problems in cities with high populations. It also contains a flame detection system that can identify local fires by processing signals receives from flames. However, this system contains a fire extinguisher to automatically extinguish the fire. Finally, an air quality monitoring system collects information from their surroundings. The information from this work could be used by decision market for better city planning.
