The journey toward realizing a “smart city” leads back to one path that many learned people argue is “the best solution for a smart city.” This solution embraces the Internet of Things (IoT) in every aspect of the city as much as possible. The debates on IoT as a solution have been ongoing, and not many have come up with an answer that differs from the mainstream. This research intends to find out whether IoT is a viable solution and if other potential options are better. This study was based on a qualitative approach that began with 1) a survey of literature, 2) preliminary results highlighting that IoT is not a viable solution, and 3) with IoT alone, cities are deemed partially smart. Findings indicate that we require two crucial components, i.e., being autonomous and self-learning in order to achieve a smart city.
