OUR MOTIVATION

Smarter cities look like connected environments with future technologies, but are rarely run as "smart" places, neglecting to leverage the vast and complex data sources distributed throughout the space. From airports, to train stations, toll raods to busy urban intersections, the world of mobility is ripe for disruption. With lots of stakeholders across the built environment, and outdated approaches to operations, innovations in cities are few and far between.

There are huge opportunities to better engage citizens, use data, and prepare for the arrival of future mobility solutions like autonomous vehicles. We see the future of smart cities as being dynamic, user-centric and green.

THE CHALLENGE

"How can we use data to
make cities more liveable
for their citizens"


Use our cool resources to think of innovative ways that we can capture, analyse and share data in a city to make it more user-centric and for a chance to win some awesome prizes!
