Cyber-physical urban systems

Cities in the 21st century will increasingly become an amalgam of the conventional physical infrastructure and the new cyber-physical systems that guide and modulate many aspects of day-to-day life. These include smart sensors and actuators, robots, drones and driverless cars, and smart buildings, to name a few. The Metropolis Project supports the development of these cyber technologies, as well as their safe, effective, beneficial, and equitable deployment in cities.
