San Diego is growing fast. It has 1.4 million residents but this is forecast to rise to 1.95 million by 2050. The city has one of the largest homeless populations in the United States and the mayor has set some of the most ambitious emissions reduction targets in the world.

 

San Diego’s smart city goals include halving greenhouse gas emissions by 2035, getting traffic flowing better, improving public safety and using existing infrastructure much more efficiently.

 

To do this, San Diego is deploying the world’s largest city IoT sensor platform, transforming its street lighting into a connected digital infrastructure. The real-time sensor data delivered from across the city will be used to develop applications that tackle pressing challenges and improve the city for its citizens.
