Smart cities. At one time, this term would have elicited visions of a Jetsons-type future of flying cars, robot housekeepers and moving sidewalks. And today, while all or our vehicles are still firmly grounded, smart city technology is bringing some once unimaginable concepts to life. It is having an increasing impact our daily lives in ways both big and small, while also helping to tackle some of the biggest issues faced in America’s cities.
