Internet of Things (IoT) approach is empowering smart city creativities all over the world. There is no specific tool or criteria for the evaluation of the services offered by the smart city. In this paper, a new Multilayer Fuzzy Inference System (MFIS) is proposed for the assessment of the Planet Factors of smart city (PFSC). The PFSC system is categorized into two levels. The proposed MFIS based expert system can categories the evaluation level of planet factors of the smart city into low, satisfied, or good.
