During “Smart Cities” students used smart sensors and IoT (the Internet of Things - the network of physical objects or “things”—that are embedded with sensors, software, and other technologies so they can exchange data with other “things” and systems). Hands-on activities involved monitoring gardens and parking lots - with real plants, toy cars, and laptop computers, to show how information networks can play an important role in the design of efficient, smart cities.
