Itron, is a publicly-traded smart technology company enabling utilities and cities to safely, securely, and reliably deliver critical infrastructure services to communities in more than 100 countries. The company also recently completed its inaugural Smart City Challenge. The competition brought together the cities of London and Glasgow and tech startups to solve difficult city challenges.
Itai Dadon, director of smart cities and IoT at Itron advised, “The inaugural Itron Smart City Challenge shows how we are applying technology for a purpose. While these solutions were purpose-built to address specific needs defined by the sponsoring cities, river safety and noise pollution are common concerns for cities worldwide. We invite cities from around the world to collaborate with Itron to launch the next set of open innovation challenges.” Itai Dadon, Itron’s director of smart cities and IoT joins me on my daily tech podcast to talk about the company’s work with London and Glasgow. We also talk about the innovators who participated in the challenge. I learn how The Smart City Challenge showcased how Itron is enabling cities and technology innovators to work together to solve problems and improve citizen wellbeing. Using Itron’s standards-based developer tools, the winning companies created integrated IoT solutions that leverage Itron’s IoT networks in the Cities of Glasgow and London.
