The VIP program provides a multi-year, integrated approach to learning that emphasizes project-based, interdisciplinary, research-active education. It provides an opportunity to learn and practice professional skills while making real-world contributions.
This project-based course will form research teams that design and prototype technological innovations to address the needs of smart cities. This technology will be designed within the context of the data collection and processing network essential to connected cities. This VIP course will coordinate with the NYU Tandon School of Engineering and CUSP.
The team will research the needs of smart cities related to the technical issues outlined in the Report to the President “Technology and the Future of Cities” with an emphasis on transportation including: cities, vehicles, infrastructure, and transportation users. These sub-teams will develop hardware, software, data analysis, application, and project management of their problem definition.
