Registration URL: http://www.itsa.org/connectedcitieswebinar
The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) will host a free webinar to inform stakeholders of its new Connected Cities Research Program. Connected vehicle technologies, integrated sensors, big data analytics, cloud computing, mobile devices, social media, the smart grid, and the Internet of Things (IoT) are converging to transform the future of our cities, making them smarter and their citizens more connected than ever before. To help shape this future, the U.S. DOT Intelligent Transportation Systems Joint Program Office (ITS JPO) is launching a Connected Cities Research Program.
What makes a city smart and connected? What innovations are connecting citizens to their transportation options and their cities overall? What role might connected vehicles play in a connected city? This webinar will address these and other critical questions as it introduces the ITS JPO’s Connected Cities Research Program and begins a dialogue with stakeholders about how we can best plan for connected cities’ future.
