With more people inhabiting the same finite space, safety,
particularly as it relates to transportation, is a major priority.
Today, more and more city-dwellers use alternative transportation - bicycles, scooters, ride-shares and walking—
for short-distance travel. While these alternative forms of travel help ease automobile congestion, they also take
up space. With so many people in constant motion in an increasingly cramped space, accidents
are on the rise.
Smart cities—powered by IoT and driven by data—seek to solve the issues of transportation efficiency and safety.
