What are the most necessary/important connections we can make in a smart city? One of the things I'd love to see demoed are solar panels for pavement or asphalt.

I remember the fire and hellstorm (aka rash of social media postings and local news stories) when Pacific Gas and Electric debuted smart meters in California. As smart cities evolve, I wonder if there will be the same sort of outcry.

Perhaps most US cities lacks in so many aspects, they need to fix them along with introducing smart city culture.

Also US needs to look at Europe nd become equally gren too.

Many U.S. cities could really benefit from a smart IoT network of sensors that monitor the aging and failing infrastructure -- high tech systems monitoring the declining low tech systems.

I'd love to hear proposals or requirements for making cities smarter with IoT.

Every city has different needs and areas of improvement. For example, some cities might have traffic congestion problem, others might have law and enforcement problem while other might have basic necessacity and pollution problem etc. Identification of the biggest problem of the city should be the first step before thinking about the proposals.

well, it is time, since now we are third world country, if you look and compary with the rest of the world,  just the prices are high not  the provided service e.g. you pay $60 for a 1.5/ 0.350Mb/s internet service in the "Silicon Valley"

Smart City project today span the spectrum from big Corporations (IBM's Smarter Planet and electric company Smartmeters) to startups coordinating taxi services (Uber) and housing (Airbnb) to grass roots Smartphone APPs for reporting urban potholes. With so many players in such a distributed process, we're at risk of having a different APP and a different program for everything we do. I hope that some thought is being given towards creating a unified structure so that all these distributed systems can collaborate and present a coherent interface to the user.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
