The buzz: Honk honk! Beep beep!

As cities around the world work hard to maintain a safe, clean, inclusive urban environment, they require innovative tools to perform a growing number of mundane tasks that keep our cities and streets – and our lives – moving at a steady pace. What are they choosing? Real-time IoT sensors.

The results? Storm drains can keep themselves clear during heavy rains. Street lights can send alerts for maintenance or replacement. Taxicabs can signal progress to help maximize city traffic flow and minimize disruptions. And much more.

How smart is your city?

The experts speak.
