During the Fall 2014, a team of 17 graduate students and two professors worked with the city of San Leandro to develop digital tools to improve the ways in which city residents live, move and walk together. At this event, city officials and industry leaders will present the challenges of planning for and encouraging urban mobility, and the teams will discuss their field research and present designs that respond to urban mobility concerns. Core topics include pedestrian safety, urban beauty, and public transit optimization. The teams’ projects showcase how sensor data can facilitate existing city initiatives, articulate urban challenges, and validate the impact of innovative design. Special guests include Bay Area business leaders, innovation officers, design agencies, and community organizations who will present feedback to the research teams in this public discussion.
