Smart Cities May 2019: Solving Environmental Challenges in Smart Cities, pt. 2
From Danielia DeLorenzo
This is the tenth segment from a conference at Princeton University on academic “Smart Cities” research and its potential relevance to New Jersey’s urban centers.
In this section, a group of New Jersey professors focus primarily on the environmental challenges of urban cities. Through the development of environmental sensing technologies, cities are able to predict, categorize, and learn about environmental 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.
