Smart Cities Workshop
at LFI 2019
Current by GE is bringing together leaders from municipalities and utilities who are considering smart lighting and/or smart city deployment to share experiences and lessons learned.
San Diego is deploying the world’s largest Smart City IoT platform with Current, transforming street lighting into a connected digital infrastructure. The new digital frontier will make neighborhoods safer, smarter and more sustainable, as well as ignite a new app economy.
Build the thriving city
City leaders are turning their ubiquitous lighting footprint into digital infrastructures enabled by CityIQ™, Current’s unique intelligent node embedded with multiple sensors. This node is extensible through over-the-air upgrades of analytics, connection to neighboring devices and in its ability to do multi-sensor fusion over a secure cloud connection. The node’s aesthetics allow seamless integration to a variety of streetscapes and sits elegantly on any street light pole.
In short, CityIQ transforms a city's lighting infrastructure into an all-knowing, data intelligence network.

A smarter system
Current’s intelligent cities API’s make the vast amount of sensor data actionable through the cloud. These open, yet highly secured, API’s deliver real-time intelligence to cities allowing them to enhance their open data policies and begin civic engagement models.
This engagement connects citizens, the local developer community, entrepreneurs, start-ups, universities and companies with niche expertise globally to transform that data into applications that drive new city services, optimize operations and improve citizens’ quality of life.
City leaders no longer have to solve every problem on their own with limited resources. Now, they're able to enlist the greater community to help them solve the toughest issues, create new revenue streams, drive economic development and make their city a better place to live, work and play.
ANNUAL SAVINGS CITIES WILL SEE BY 2019, BY INSTALLING SMART STREET LIGHTS AND DEVICES
Together with AT&T, Current is creating endless possibilities through an open, interoperable IoT platform. These possibilities range from reducing traffic congestion and detecting gun violence to increasing job creation and pedestrian safety. With the ever-expanding ecosystem partners and the innovative developer community, thousands of applications can be built to drive desired outcomes for cities.

How we make it happen
LED streetlights provide lower-cost, environmentally friendly lighting for pedestrians—and can be integrated with an array of intelligent hardware.
Streetlight fixtures can be equipped with energy load controls, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi capabilities, security cameras, sensors that monitor motion, sound and atmospheric changes and more.
UNLEASHED BY DEVELOPERS
We empower application developers with ubiquitous real-time data from CityIQ™ IoT Platform to improve citizens' quality of life.
ENHANCED BY PARTNERSHIPS
We partner with vendors and developers on software applications that use our data for everything from real-time transit trackers to public safety alerts.
San Diego is switching on the potential of our streetlights in ways that seemed improbable just a few years ago because of Current’s Intelligent Cities technology.
