Predictions about the emergence of “smarter” cities are gaining momentum in popular conversation. Envision a network of city sensors that captures data to better optimize processes and react to events. These sensors identify things like potholes, gunshots, air quality, traffic patterns, water leaks and a whole host of other municipal issues.

Cities see the opportunity to gain efficiencies and further stretch precious tax dollars. Together, they are working to best implement the city of the future.
