Alphabet’s smart city spinoff will work with Transportation for America to develop transportation solutions
Sidewalk Labs, the smart city spinoff from Alphabet, just announced plans to partner with a leading non-profit to develop and refine new solutions for local transportation issues. The organization’s new partnership with Transportation for America (T4A) will focus on the development of “connected streets,” according to a press release, with the goal of creating connected roadways and other transportation hubs that can lead to more efficient, multimodal transportation and data-driven decision making.
“By drawing on Transportation for America’s long experience working within local communities, we can focus the conversation on cities’ goals and break down the divide between technologists and city leaders,” said Anand Babu, COO of Sidewalk Labs, in a statement. “And as a result, we’ll build a network where best practices and ideas for solving these problems through emerging technologies can be shared among cities across the country.”
