Editor’s Note: By 2050, two-thirds of the world’s population is expected to live in cities. With current U.S. infrastructure earning a D+ grade by The American Society of Civil Engineers, the country can’t expect to sustain economic success and a growing population without acknowledging the impact it has on competitiveness and quality of life. The answer is building infrastructure that is smarter. Intelligent technologies not only improve systems, but make them more intuitive, safer, cleaner, and more efficient.
