The city of San Diego "will install 4,200 sensor nodes built by CityIQ as part of a massive internet of things (IoT) project that will also include new apps to improve parking and traffic, and a lighting controls interface that could boost streetlight efficiency by 20%," reports Jason Plautz.

"The CityIQ nodes, which collect and distribute data on an open platform, will be used to support a number of new apps including Genetec, which helps with real-time emergency response," adds Plautz. "The data will also support Xaqt, a data and AI platform that gives real-time and historical mobility patterns for traffic and parking."

As noted by Plautz, CityIQ has several partnerships already underway with the city of San Diego departments.
