By 2020, it is estimated that the number of connected devices ─ commonly referred to as the Internet of Things (IoT) ─ will exceed 50 billion. In the urban environment, these new technologies are transforming city life and helping pave the way for a more sustainable, resilient and equitable future.
Smart city technologies ─ like sensors that capture pollution in the air or lights that only turn on when someone is in the room ─ improve City services, generate cost-savings, ease day-to-day life for residents, and strengthen public health and safety.
New York City has emerged as a global leader in the development and deployment of these new innovations – thanks to our dynamic start-up community.
