  The smart cities are concentrated on supervisory available resources safe and sound, defensible, and efficiently to develop the economy and social results. People, organizations, and things in the cities are producing huge amount of data daily. Thus, big data created from several resources is supposed to be the most scalable quality of a smart city. In the current decade Managing Big data generated by vital connected devices are difficult to handle, for handling this difficulty “big data” an efficient computing platform “fog computing” has been proposed. It is standard that is extending the cloud computing services to the edge of the network and is used for reducing the latency of dynamic decision making and improving the real-time internet of hinges of things consists of minute and the resource restraint device that are connected to the internet.
