Metropolitan areas are keenly focused on finding solutions to city congestion, more efficient street lighting and better traffic flows. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, nearly 70% of the world’s population could dwell in city centers by 2050. So “smart society” initiatives, such as the move toward autonomous vehicles, connected traffic and street lights will continue to gather momentum to save energy, ensure public safety and curb the deleterious effects of climate change.

IoT World Today sat down with Steve Griffith, industry director and the National Electrical Manufacturers Association, to discuss autonomous vehicles, smart lighting and smart parking will take shape in future cities. We also discussed the importance of industry standards, the importance of 5G, and security-by-design principles.

Check out our conversation with Griffith on smart transportation projects here.

Griffith will be a speaker at the Industrial IoT World event in December. You can check out his session by registering for the show here.
