Cities are inherently complex and vastly interrelated challenges. Meanwhile, the rapid growth of cities is not commensurate with the capacity to expand their infrastructure and imposes increasing pressure on urban infrastructure. In other words, it is beyond their capacities and capabilities. Therefore, they always suffer from adverse consequences. One of the new concepts to meet the current challenges of cities in the field of urban planning is the development of smart cities that integrate physical and virtual capabilities. The trend of smart cities in Tehran has started a few years ago. In this study, the current situation of Tehran was evaluated and the strengths and weaknesses of Tehran Smart City were identified, and appropriate strategies and measures to continue the trend of moving Tehran City towards Smart City. The research method in this research is descriptive-analytical. SWOT analysis method and internal matrices (IFE) and external (EFE) were used for research. The results of this study show that all the necessities that have led cities in the world to smart approaches are also applicable in Tehran and the situation of Tehran in the trend of smart city in Tehran is appropriate. According to the strategy selected in this research, which is the Maxi-Maxi or SO strategy, the city of Tehran can continue the smart city trend by using its strengths and investing in opportunities and achieve the desired goals.
