Abstract: Researchers have been setting their focus on improving the quality of life of the human being, especially at large urban centres. However, problems like crowding, traffic accidents or crime are still to be unscrambled. Indeed, one may use the amazing technological evolution the world is experiencing to mitigate such problems, focusing the Internet of Things in the creation of truly Smart Cities. Hence, this work intends to study and analyse relevant areas of intervention in Smart Cities, with special focus on the efforts being made to enhance the safety of those more vulnerable at the road, known as Vulnerable Road Users. Undeniably, one’s review shows that insufficient focus is being given to the use of the Internet of People to address this challenge, renouncing the possibility of access information such as position, pace, and physical and emotional conditions of the user. It becomes now imperative to shift the paradigm and proceed towards the Internet of People.
