This is happening – are we ready?

Entirely new cities and “fiberhoods” are emerging, grounded in cutting-edge technology. Sensor-laden, data-driven and internet-connected, these urban prototypes are the testing grounds for the future.

One of the best examples of this New World Order is Peña Station Next, just outside of Denver – a prototype for the technologically transformed urban neighborhood of the future. Panasonic and Colorado-based developer L.C. Fulenwider are partnering on the project that will double as a proving ground for exotic technology. When completed in 10 to 12 years, it will be a landscape where virtually every object — from lighting to parking meters — will be connected to the internet and will supply a continuous stream of data to the development’s managers, who also will be able to control them via cloud-based apps.

A cutting-edge sensor array already developed by federal government researchers will continuously monitor environmental conditions – everything from the cloud cover to the level of particulates in the air, as well as traffic density and pedestrian count.
