Advanced and Autonomous Transportation in Smart Regions
In the last century, we automated communication. It’s a new century, and we are on the verge of automating transportation as population growth is only increasing the strain on our existing transportation infrastructure. As we look through human history, every time we’ve had a paradigm shift in transportation, we’ve doubled our quality of life. It will not be without roadblocks, but we’re on the verge of achieving this goal in this century – and perhaps within the next decade.

Smart Cities are Healthy Cities
Data collection is the prescription for a healthier population in smart cities. This applies to monitoring the quality of our water and air, as well as the overall health of individuals and the region’s population. Putting this data to use allows us to react better and stay more prepared. Improved quality of life and extended life expectancy are natural outcomes for residents of smart cities.
