Session Description

If one were to “google” smart cities on the internet, one would find that “a city can be defined as ‘smart’ when investments in human and social capital and traditional (transport) and modern (ICT) communication infrastructure fuel sustainable economic development and a high quality of life.” Central to the effectiveness of smart cities and their ability to safely and efficiently facilitate the movement of people and goods is ITS. Thanks to the efforts of a number of ITS America’s members, smart cities are no longer just a good idea. The Session panel will offer its perspective on the prospects and progress of smart cities via case studies, data, and early assessments where communities have taken on this challenge.
