Smart city IoT is here ...

Pagarba (pagarba.io) worked on some real time location tracking sensors and data collection projects.   We've been diving into radio frequencies, Lora , lorawan and private decentralized mesh networks lately to build better smarter Internet of things systems.  Good stuff. Interesting city.

" Wireless sensors can be used to monitor traffic data and analytics.  An ongoing pilot program on lower Union Street aims to count vehicles with the goal of reducing flow and idling.

Data will also allow vehicles can be re-routed in the event of a crash or some other kind of large-scale event. "
