Smart Metering – The Transition to Digital Utility
Smart meters and connected meters are being widely deployed by water, gas and electricity utilities, with projects of hundreds of millions of units currently underway. These networked devices are enabling new business models as well as the deployment of new technologies such as small solar and battery storage. While there are many advantages to the deployment of smart meters, there are also potential risks to privacy or even being maliciously disconnected from basic services. Get the big picture on utility smart metering.

Austin’s Evolving Transportation Connectedness
Transportation is evolving rapidly across the world with new ways for people to connect (mobility) to activities that enrich their lives – work, education, healthcare, recreation, entertainment… Transportation agencies are also evolving to support this connectedness and provide a better service to their citizens, businesses, and visitors. For example, Austin is actively connecting transportation modes(transit, cyclists, emergency vehicles) to its signal system, connecting infrastructure to monitor its real-time health, and opening up its data to enable the private sector to provide value added services to the community.
