Global City Teams Challenge

Internet-of-Things (IoT)-based Transportation Solutions

Vidya will be in Washington, DC representing Portland along with the team at Technology Association of Oregon (TAO) at the Global City Teams Challenge.


Projects in Portland

"TAO is working with the City of Portland, Portland State University, Intel and others to participate in the Global Smart Cities Challenge, which is being organized by the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the White House, to implement Internet-of-Things (IoT)-based transportation solutions to improve congestion, air quality and citizen health and wellness. TAO is also working with the City of Independence, Intel, and others on an education-focused Global Smart Cities Challenge project in the Independence-Monmouth region. The project will enable students to work on developing IoT sensor networks and will leverage smart agriculture applications and big data to benefit the local region."


Global City Teams Challenge

"Join US Ignite and NIST June 1st in Washington for the Global City Teams Challenge Expo to see the future of Smart City / Internet of Things technology. US Ignite and NIST, with the help of our partners, will showcase new IoT technologies that are transforming decision making within a smart city / smart community environment here in the US and around the world.

The Global City Teams Challenge is a collaborative network of project teams, or “action clusters,” working on innovative applications of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies within a smart city / smart community environment. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and US Ignite have teamed up with the Department of Transportation (DoT), National Science Foundation (NSF), International Trade Administration (ITA), Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and Department of Energy (DoE) to advance practical applications of cyber-physical systems. 



Through the GCTC, more than 50 forward-looking cities and communities have partnered with private organizations, universities and not-for-profit organizations to accelerate the deployment of IoT technologies designed to address some of the most pressing challenges facing local communities."
