US$50 million challenge to award smartest US city


The US Department of Transportation (DOT) is teaming up with Microsoft billionaire, Paul Allen, to award a combined US$50 million to the smartest US mid-sized city. To win the DOT Smart City Challenge, cities must create an integrated model that involves data, technology and creativity to shape how goods and people are moved in the future. The US DOT will provide US$40 million to the winning city. To claim the extra US$10 million cities must work alongside Allen’s Vulcan company to implement the idea. Cities are invited to submit ideas that address or enhance community through innovation and data-driven platforms. Specifically, these innovations will connect people, vehicles, public transport, and infrastructure through ITS, sharing economy, and other technologies that improve the way Americans move. Five finalists will be announced in March 2016 to compete for the prize in June 2016.
