Local government data sets continue to open up as do private data sets. From illegal parking to cooking oil disposal, laws that govern how more people live together depend on more efficient and effective enforcement for revenues and well being. What opportunities exist for connected devices to support those charged with law enforcement?
Smart Mobility Challenge
People’s mobility is undergoing a Cambrian moment. But what about how things move or how we move things? What new opportunities exist to move the things we depend on every day, such as food and waste or maybe even our homes and offices?
Green Tech Challenge
Cities need to adjust to new water challenges. For many areas, local water sources are being exhausted. At the same time, climate effects, such as rising seas and weather that leads to more flooding, are creating new water challenges.
What new solutions might help reduce the strain on water sources? How can cities more effectively cope with flooding?
