Progress of our Smart City Projects

The Innovation District is a test bed for smart city technology. Over the last two years the District along with national and local partners has begun four proof of concept projects: smart lighting, Guardians of the Gulf (STEAM education), smart intersection, and digital inclusion. On March 3, 2021 the team shared the progress of these projects and their aspirations for the future.  Kudos to everyone for their work on these projects and a fantastic showcase!
