Tierney explained that “The Smarter City that connects citizens with their community, connects networked and autonomous vehicles to roadways, and connects municipal services delivery using sustainable and renewable operations is here. Enabling these innovations to become realities requires that the public and private sector initiatives be supported by regional research institutions and orchestrated with regional government councils and local transportation authorities to orchestrate how to design and deliver on this promise. Bringing all these players together is what the Smart Cities Summit is all about.”
