Curiosity Lab at Peachtree Corners has entered into a strategic partnership with Smart City Expo Atlanta (SCATL) and the grand opening of its 5G enabled autonomous vehicle and smart city living laboratory.
SCATL is the only US edition of Smart City Expo World Congress held annually in Barcelona and is set to bring together more than 2,500 attendees, 200 speakers and 50 exhibitors at the Georgia World Congress Center from September 11-13.
It will be an event to discuss the state of ‘smart cities’ and the technological trends driving their success.
Brian Johnson, city manager for Peachtree Corners, commented: “Startups and mature companies around the world are interested in using the Lab’s test track to better understand how their technology operates in a suburban community with people working and living around them.”
Adding: “Our partnership with Smart City Expo Atlanta offers companies the opportunity to demonstrate their technology firsthand and jumpstart the Expo. It will also provide citizens and conference attendees a glimpse of what the future test site will look like.”
Conference attendees can expect to see drones, autonomous vehicles and other innovative technologies.
Aarti Tandon, co-founder and CEO of the expo, said: “As the Southeast’s largest and most advanced technology hub, Atlanta is a natural location for the development of IoT, mobility, and smart city technology.
Concluding: “Our partnership with Curiosity Lab at Peachtree Corners is a transformative way to exhibit real-world IoT technology in action, and will help conference attendees visualize the future of their communities. We are thrilled to be working together on this cutting-edge demonstration.”
