Intel Helps San Jose Become America’s First Smart City
The Smart Cities USA partnership will demonstrate how cities can use the Internet of Things to improve quality of life for its citizens.
Last years’ SmartAmerica Challenge, issued by the White House, was launched to prove how the Internet of Things could not only improve the efficiency of American cities, but also create jobs, and help develop new business opportunities. Intel accepted the challenge and created America’s first Smart City in San Jose, California. By leveraging the power of an Internet of Things network, the city is now able to monitor live statistics on transportation, air quality and more.
