Smart City Lab

The city has received a Smart 50 Award for its 5G test track project

Incorporated just six years ago, the City of Peachtree Corners is already being recognized on the international stage as a smart city for its innovative plans to build an intelligent mobility and smart city laboratory.

The City recently received a Smart 50 Award in the “Mobility” category by Smart Cities Connect. This award recognizes communities that are developing and adopting smart technology solutions for the betterment of communities and their citizens. Each year, Smart 50 Awards annually recognize global smart cities projects, honoring the most innovative and influential work.  The most innovative and transformative initiatives are spotlighted at the Smart Cities Connect Exposition, recognized as the largest gathering of smart IoT technologies, companies, and cities from around the globe. A complete list of the Smart 50 Award winners for 2019 can be found here.

Construction of the City’s living laboratory, named Curiosity Lab at Peachtree Corners, began in early March and upon completion in mid-summer will consist of a 1.5-mile test track located on a section of Technology Parkway within Technology Park Atlanta.  This state-of-the-art living laboratory will feature Sprint’s 5G and IoT technology and offer a unique opportunity for companies to explore the next generation of intelligent mobility and IoT applications in an environment that includes interaction with real-world vehicular and pedestrian traffic. The lab’s 5G wireless network coupled with its dedicated short-range communications (DSRC) channels will also allow companies to test vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communications.

“We are extremely pleased that the City has been recognized for its plans to develop Curiosity™ Lab at Peachtree Corners,” said City Manager Brian Johnson. “It will be an asset to the innovation community and provide economic development opportunities for Peachtree Corners.” Mr. Johnson has also been asked to lead a panel discussion at the Smart Cities Connect Expo to discuss the options available to municipalities for building an IoT infrastructure that is efficient, fast, and reliable in the long-term.  This panel discussion will walk attendees through the end-to-end infrastructure considerations for smart city implementations.
