Edge computing deals with computation performed at the edge of networks and devices whereas the Internet of Things focuses on data communication over networks. Edge computing has the capability to overcome the issues of data privacy and response time thereby reducing energy consumption. In this paper, we provided the comprehensive survey focusing on integrating Edge Computing with IoT for the design and development of Smart City Vision which incorporates information and communication technologies to enhance the quality of life factors for the people in the city. Initially, we provide an overview of Edge computing and IoT and the relationship between them are explored. Furthermore, the paper will present and discuss the guidelines and framework to be adopted for establishing the Smart City Vision.
