The Smart Cities movement is global, focused on transforming cities into more livable, workable and sustainable urban areas. Cities are tapping into old urban infrastructures, legacy IT systems, public data sources and instrumenting their diverse, outdoor physical assets with sensors, instruments and controls. Join this session to discover how cities are leveraging not only their smart lighting networks, but also advanced outdoor edge computing on street light infrastructure to liberate, collect, visualize, and act on urban data. This previously unavailable data is used to solve a range of problems such as improved public safety, energy efficiency and sustainability, smart mobility, environmental air quality, economic development, operational improvement/asset management. Real smart city applications (with ROI and associated benefits) that are deployed by cities will be presented.
