Abstract

The concept of technologies roads in smart cities is one of the concepts that have emerged recently in the developed world, which lacks application in the roads of our Iraqi country, despite its possession of the qualifications that enable it to keep pace with the developed world. In addition, there is a government rise in road construction and maintenance. As well as environmental concerns about reducing pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. Therefore, the main objective is to provide a comprehensive review of the idea of new technologies in roads as well as their various applications in the developed countries of the world, by focusing on smart uses of technology management and advanced technological systems that are important signs of progress. It has been recently conducted in the field of design and construction which not only accommodates major developments in building technology but also provides physical and environmental improvement to its occupants and provides areas where traditional services in construction are more diversified, efficient, sophisticated, and competitive through the use of technology to enhance city operations for the benefit of their inhabitants and the advantages of their application on roads Iraq to turn it into smart cities. This paper deals with two different cases in studying the use of new materials in establishing modern roads in smart cities. The first is to use plastic methods and the other is to use paints for glow-in-the-dark roads. The questionnaire was used to analyze the results of the study on 60 samples of engineers of different disciplines and ages. The results of the questionnaire used in the study indicate the utmost importance to refer to technological methods in the field of roads in developed countries that recognize the need for technology as a key to environmentally friendly, sustainable, and effective reform methods and their implementation in our country.
