New sensor technologies are meant to play a major role in making our cities more efficient, and ultimately improve global quality of life. Comprehensive connected sensor networks can monitor and optimize many aspects of a city in real time. Traffic flow, energy consumption, public lighting, parking management or public space security are just a few examples of where smart sensors can contribute to accelerate commutes, reduce pollution, generate substantial savings for public and private authorities, and make city life more enjoyable for everyone.
