Smart Cities of the South

RIoT/Charlotte IoT is excited to see you tonight! As a reminder, the event starts at 5pm and is in the Richardson Foyer, just outside of Ballrooms B & C, of the Charlotte Convention Center.

Join RIoT for their 25th event, in partnership with the Wireless Industry Association. This event is focused on Smart Cities of the South.

Cities are increasingly prioritizing smart city initiatives for the communities they serve. This not only serves as a driver of economic development and IoT, it provides efficiencies that improve quality of life for its residents. Join us in learning about the collaboration between the Charlotte Area Transit Authority and a local entrepreneur success story, Passport, that creates accessibility improvements to the Blue Line light rail system.
