Solutions addressing traffic, parking, conservation, connectivity, and mobility to launch in Dallas
Six new programs designed to improve access, increase conservation, bridge the digital divide, and navigate through the city more easily will soon be integrated into the “Living Lab,” a corridor in the West End Historic District in Downtown Dallas.
The effort is led by The Dallas Innovation Alliance, a nonprofit that brings the public and private sector together to design and execute a smart city strategy for Dallas
Projects announced include:
- Smart parking efforts with utilization, traffic flow, and spot availability from Dallas startup ParkHub
- AT&T Smart Cities Digital Infrastructure powered by City IQ by Current delivering nodes with initial applications that will include “TrafficPulse,” “ParkingView,” and “CitySight,” respectively
- Public Wi-Fi in the Living Lab led by the City of Dallas and powered by AT&T, Cisco, Nokia, and Scientel Solutions
- Mobility initiative with Toyota Motor North America in South Dallas, currently in the research phase
“It is only through key partnerships and the vision of the City of Dallas that we have been able to build the most robust and fastest-to-market smart city pilot in the country here in Dallas,” commented Jennifer Sanders, Executive Director, Dallas Innovation Alliance. “With the launch of this second phase of projects in the West End, Living Lab data will grow more robust and provide even better insights as we look to scale more broadly across the city.”
The Dallas Innovation Alliance Smart Cities Living Lab powered by AT&T launched in March 2017, and today the DIA works with more than 20 city departments and 30 partner organizations to create solutions to benefit the people of Dallas.
Full second-quarter results will be available on the Dallas Innovation Alliance website, at http://www.DallasInnovationAlliance.com.
