The City of San Diego is pioneering one of the first smart city programs in the US with Current by GE. This month, the city rolled out smart sensors on 3,200 street lamps throughout the city that have the ability to collect and record data—everything from traffic flow and parking to crime and environmental data—that can be accessed by multiple city departments and by apps created by city residents. We sat down with Austin Ashe, co-founder and general manager of Intelligent Cities at Current by GE, to talk about the program, how it started and how it could mean big changes for the city.
