Kansas City to develop a smart city network

The Kansas City Council has approved a $15 million agreement with a private partnership to turn a two mile stretch of the streetcar line into a “Smart City” network. 

The project includes the creation of interactive digital kiosks to share information about events and city services with pedestrians.

Data about infrastructure and traffic will be detected by sensors and sent back to the city in real time.

The city will become a technology center where entrepreneurs can test innovations and technologies in a smart environment, putting Kansas City at the forefront of the growing Internet of Everything (IoE) industry.

The “Smart City” network is expected to use a public Wi-Fi system that would also be available to residents and visitors for free.
