Smart Cities

Research conducted by the Smart Cities Center will develop and monitor sustainable urban infrastructure and buildings, improve the power supply through smart grid technology, detect and counteract problems with aging urban infrastructure, calculate and communicate optimal transportation routes under congested traffic conditions, and deploy ubiquitous sensing devices to facilitate everyday activities in a crowded urban environment. The Center will be housed on the Morningside campus.
