There are a few ways in which smart cities are being implemented around the world and Array of Things in Chicago relies heavily on modular sensor boxes to connect with its residents on a deeper level. Creating a network of real-time data, the platform plans will focus on such areas as the city’s environment, infrastructure as well as activity for research and public use.

In addition to helping citizens navigate and live in Chicago, Array of Things will fulfill other higher level ideas such as understanding the natural and built environment of the city, making data available to residents, software developers, scientists and policymakers for smart collaboration and enabling new training and education opportunities in science and technology related to cities.
