Building Complete Streets with Smart and Connected Technologies [Venture Smarter]
Streets and Sidewalks can be enhanced and optimized using smart and connected technologies. As we add a prioritization lens for "complete street" projects, it is timely to add a "smart and connected" prioritization layer on top of that so we can better monitor pedestrian and traffic counts, track environmental and situational changes, streamline parking, make transit more accessible, and enable best-practices public safety for pedestrians, bikers, and vehicles, alike. As we venture into the age of autonomous transportation, the municipalities that add a "smart and connected" prioritization will come out ahead with connected corridors that allow and promote advanced and autonomous transportation and transit solutions as much as alternative transportation options like walking and biking.

Governments, businesses and civil society together with the United Nations are mobilizing efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Agenda by 2030. Universal, inclusive and indivisible, the Agenda calls for action by all countries to improve the lives of people everywhere.
By using smart and connected technologies, we can more efficiently and effectively reach those goals, and by doing so, can give even our most at need residents and regions the tools they need to succeed in short time. 100% Connected, 100% Mobile is a strong foundation to begin chipping away at the challenges addressed by each of the UN SDG's.
