Action planning for deployment of smart city tech

With collaboration partners at Newcastle City Council, I instruct third-year undergraduate planning students on the deployment of smart city technology. Based on the interests of the collaboration partner, the project emphasised on digital applications for enhancing mobility and transport (planning and delivery). Learners are introduced to a review of example cases elsewhere and are provided with a structured approach to develop a ‘smart citizen’ action plan for how the council might adopt digital technologies for transport and mobility with involvement and awareness of citizens’ needs and lead users’ requirements.
