Mobility Data and the Digital City Future

Cities have access to anonymized mobility data that you create: scooter trips, Uber/Lyft usage, Waze traffic jams, bike share movement, and street sensors and cameras. Cities use this data to improve infrastructure, transit options, pedestrian safety, air pollution reductions, and project selection and funding. Soon cities will manage the right-of-way and curb digitally to dynamically charge for and assign access to AVs, ride share, buses, dockless vehicles, and delivery vehicles. Learn how cities will manage this while accounting for privacy, security, your digital rights, transparency, and open data using public/private partnerships, foundations, and open source software solutions.
