WSU is one of six founding partners in Urbanova, a smart technology proving ground in the heart of Spokane. WSU scientists are working with researchers from Verizon Smart Communities, Gallup, Avista, the city of Spokane and other partners in Urbanova to come up with new ways of using smart technology to solve a variety of challenges facing cities across the country.
For example, the Smart and Connected Streetlights Pilot project enables the intelligent management and control of the streetlights in Spokane’s university district using a smart, connected sensor network. The pilot also features a human‑scale urban air quality R&D component, measuring environmental factors to improve understanding of pollution and health in a community.
