Re: A holistic view ...
That's interesting we don't have them where we live but we do have solar street lamps making a presence. So far I have not seen any issues with them. At my mall they are working just fine but I will have to look at them during our next storm.

Designing Smart Cities
It would be great if companies asked consumers what services they want or need and include those in the design of smart cities and continually get feedback from consumers about what works and what doesn't work in terms of user friendliness and usability such as LED streetlights. It may save cities money but in terms of user friendliness they are not.

Re: A holistic view ...
@mhhf1ve, good insight. I do really like the LED streetlights because at times and during various weather scenarios (rain, snow, fog,etc.) it is difficult to the LED streetlights until you get close to them. I prefer the older streetlights.

Re: How much smarter do we want a city to be?
I live outside of NYC and it is also still lacking. So many third part providers of transportation create a maze for navigating tourists or those trying to get in or out of the city. It would be great if there was a way to comprehensively help people navigate all aspects of cities with technology.

Re: How much smarter do we want a city to be?
@maryam@impact Most cities are still way behind the ball on IoT. When I read your comment I instantly thought about Washington DC. The DC Metro has so many problems because it is such an antiquated system. Here's hoping a well-needed refresh will mean they add a lot of sensor-based devices to help speed up the overall system.

Re: How much smarter do we want a city to be?
We still don't have comprehensive notifications regarding transportation, we recently had a train accident in my area train schedules were impacted for weeks. The sad part was that no one could get updates on their train's real time schedules were constantly changing and people were missing their trains for weeks. Smart communications would have addressed such an issue.

Re: A holistic view ...
I'm a big fan of smart parking solutions. Parking is such a huge problem in cities, it is one of the reasons why some people don't want to live in them. 

By making parking smarter, cities can reduce traffic and pollution that comes from cars driving around looking for a parking space. That makes a ton of sense to me.

Re: How much smarter do we want a city to be?
@mhhf1ve there is this https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.LiveIndianTrainStatus&hl=en and for NYC specifically https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nyctrans.it&hl=en also https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/intime-nyc-never-miss-your/id402476594?mt=8&ign-mpt=uo%3D4and various others. They don't seem to work quite like Waze with members adding info though.

Re: How much smarter do we want a city to be?
That is a great question.  I would assume that major urban areas would have different needs than even larger suburban cities.  I love the idea of crowdsourcing priorities so that the people have their voice heard (for once).

Re: How much smarter do we want a city to be?
> "...people still wait for boards in train stations to display tracks and buy tickets at machines."

And I'm sure that's particularly frustrating for people who know that the aggregate information based on cell phone location data could easily be mapped to give people real-time updates on train delays and past reliability.... 

The Waze app aggregates traffic info for drivers... I'd be surprised if there wasn't an analogous app for public transportation passengers..?? Hmmm...
