This is the seventh video segment from a conference at Princeton University on academic “Smart Cities” research and its potential relevance to New Jersey’s urban centers.
In this segment, a group of New Jersey professors present their research, inventions, and ideas to combat small and large scale urban challenges.
“Building the Future: New Technological Frontiers in Cities” was a showcase of New Jersey university research regarding integrating urban infrastructure with networked sensors, data analytics, and other novel technologies to improve quality of life, resiliency and sustainability in urban environments.
A key objective of the day was identifying new opportunities for collaboration between universities, industry, foundations, and government in this important field.
The multi-institutional conference was organized by Princeton’s Office of Corporate Engagement and Foundation Relations and the Metropolis Project, with support from Lyft. It was held on May 6, 2019.
