Alphabet’s Sidewalk Labs to shake the smart city market
October 24, 2017
Alphabet’s Sidewalk Labs (Sidewalk) and Waterfront Toronto announced plans for the creation of Sidewalk Toronto, an ambitious smart city development plan in Toronto’s Eastern Waterfront. Sidewalk Toronto will be a testbed for the deployment of digital technology along with innovative urban planning adapted around peoples’ needs with goals in sustainability, affordability, new mobility, and economic growth.
The project will start with the creation of a testbed neighbourhood at Quayside and will eventually scale up to the rest of the Eastern Waterfront.
