Denver to Join the Ranks of Smart Cities

Denver to Join the Ranks of Smart CitiesAt LIGHTFAIR 2016, Panasonic Enterprise Solutions, a division of Panasonic Corporation of North America, and Sensity Systems Inc. announced an alliance related to Panasonic’s CityNow initiative. The first deployment will target Denver residents living and working in the PENA Boulevard Station, a transit-oriented development community being served by the city’s new light rail service.

The companies will leverage existing lighting infrastructure by embedding sensors, wireless connectivity and data analytics into LED luminaires to enable cloud-based applications and services for security, smart parking, retail services and environmental monitoring, among other initiatives.
