Engineering Smart Cities

Distributed Sensing -> Predictive Models -> Data Analytics-> Control of Smart Systems

Never before in modern history has there been such urgency surrounding the intersection of urban form, human health, and economic activity as we have seen this year with the global pandemic.  The engineering community must rise to the challenge of providing the leadership needed to reimagine our infrastructure, to make our cities safe and vibrant economic centers, and to build trust that cities can be safe places in which to live and work.  As we imagine the cities of tomorrow, we do so through a lens of modern technology, and with respect for the lessons learned over the years — from the intense deadly storms, to the seasonal droughts and heat waves, to the lifelong chronic impacts from air and water pollution.
