Jun 17, 2020

“Innovation can be a very scary word for some people, but it really comes down to solving real problems for real people.”         – David Graham, Chief Innovation Officer, City of Carlsbad

This summer, innovation and connected technologies are helping keep communities safe in the San Diego metropolitan area.

During California’s dry season, strong winds can bring serious danger. San Diego Gas & Electric built the largest weather utility network in the world to get ahead of wildfires. Meanwhile in Carlsbad, AI is powering smart traffic management, and in Chula Vista, drones are feeding live video to first responders on the ground, helping them respond to emergency calls.  

In this highlight video, learn more about these projects: Cleantech, the region’s first smart cities collaborative, and the promise of 5G to empower even more connections.
