Successful smart cities are those who recognize the importance of implementing technology and infrastructure that can create a safer and more comfortable environment for residents and visitors alike. At the same time, city leaders can expect economic growth, reduced carbon emissions and cost savings.
In this session, Lisa Brown, Senior National Director, Municipal Infrastructure & Smart Cities for Johnson Controls will explain what it takes to create a successful smart city by investing in technology and infrastructure, or leveraging existing systems that are being underutilized, that yield a results-focused approach city leaders are so keen on. Lisa will provide best practices and tips for building a smart city and how to weigh investment vs. outcome when it comes to infrastructure and technology solutions.
Lisa will share examples of existing infrastructure, such as lighting, that cities can leverage as the building block for increased connectivity, safety and security for residents. Lastly, Lisa will provide real life examples of cities that have seen success in technology and infrastructure investments or upgrades, including a recent example from Evansville, Indiana.
