The new population density in urban spaces encouraged a change in the relationship between people and cities. Smart Cities are an alternative approach that seeks quality of life, sustainability of resources and economic creativity through technology. However, this is a relatively new concept in urban planning and still lacks standardized definitions, and cities that are considered Smart have very different solutions. This paper aims to present Smart City initiatives around the world, categorizing such initiatives into sectors to understand what are the main components of a Smart City. In addition, it seeks to identify the main indicators and rankings in the literature and normative references. Using a ranking of the national territory, the intention of the work is to position São Carlos against the Smart concept, presenting proposals for improvements that would help the city to advance in the ranking. For example, the adoption of intelligent lighting, a monitoring system for hazardous areas and the expansion of cycle paths could help São Carlos advance from 70th to 5th position in the ranking.
