WHERE TO BUILD IT?
ANYWHERE
One challenge facing the smart cities
movement is retrofitting existing
communities with intelligence while
also creating smart cities in "greenfield" new construction. Experts see
the need for both implementations,
hence the value of public and private
partnerships and the infrastructure
investments that Chao mentioned.
Peter Fannon, Panasonic's former
vice president of corporate and government affairs, acknowledges that,
"Transportation is likely to be the
starting point for most communities
as they move toward solutions of
energy, safety and sustainability."
Peña Station NEXT, near Denver
International Airport, exemplifies
the new town approach: a self-sufficient community that embraces
smart technology, clean energy and
mobility. The developers are working with Panasonic Enterprise
Solutions to create a global showcase
for smart, sustainable, connected
living. Peña Station NEXT uses realtime data from a smart city street
network to monitor road conditions,
live-testing autonomous mobility,
and preparing to launch a fully connected wellness center. It was
"inspired" by the Panasonic Smart
City development in Fujisawa,
Japan, which was built six years ago
on the site of an old Matsushita
manufacturing plant and is a prototype for Panasonic's CityNOW technology with other partners in Berlin,
Singapore and China.
Another Colorado project on smart
highways is demonstrating intelli-

gence as a substitute for construction. Rather than add two lanes to
Interstate 70 near Denver, at
a cost of $500 million, the Colorado
Department of Transportation opted
to install connected technology
developed by Panasonic that can
inform cars about accidents, road
and weather conditions and other
features. The original "RoadX"
called for intelligent features on
a 90-mile stretch of road near
Denver, but during the development phase Colorado authorities
expanded the project to 400 miles
into the state's western mountains.
Panasonic sees eventual vehicleto-vehicle connectivity, including
using aftermarket installations in
current vehicles to speed widespread adoption. "The key for the
U.S. is to assure that collaboration
between all levels of government
and industry can keep us at the
forefront," he says.

ON THE SMART
CITIES MOVEMENT:

"The smart
city currency
is data."

CREATING NEW
CONNECTIVITY
COLLABORATIONS

"The smart city currency is data,"
says Dr. Brenda Connor of Ericsson.
She also agrees that Intelligent
Transportation Systems (ITS) are
the driver of smart city development
and that public and private collaboration is essential for its success.
"With the increased urbanization,
cities cannot build roads fast enough,"
says Connor, head of Ericsson's Smart
Cities & Intelligent Transport Systems
of North America. "While cities must
keep growing the transportation
infrastructure, they also must more
efficiently move people and goods
over the existing infrastructure."
Ericsson, which was an anchor
exhibitor in the Smart Cities
Marketplace at CES 2018, pioneered
its vision of smart cities more than
a decade ago. "Cities may be congested and complex, but they are also
among the planet's most exciting
places to live," Connor says. "We
