Smart Cities

In a world rapidly changing where technology is evolving almost more quickly than most individuals can keep up, it is only natural that curiosity turns toward how to use this wealth of new innovation to make our cities run more efficiently.

Charlie Catlett, Santiago Garces, Christine Kendrick, Michael Mattmiller and Ben Levine have launched a project that hopes to take this curiosity and turn it into real changes in how our cities run. From transit efficiency to environmental sustainability and beyond, this group is endeavoring to invent the city of tomorrow. To do this, they have launched MetroLab, an initiative dedicated to researching and implementing technologies to make our cities function more intelligently.
