How This Smart City Is Reducing Crime, Traffic and Pollution

Coral Gables, FL, is a coastal city home to the University of Miami, 140 multinational corporations and nearly 50,000 residents. When Raimundo Rodulfo, Director of Innovation & Technology and Chief Innovation Officer for the city, joined the public sector, he knew data and technology would help improve citizens’ lives.

In the seventh episode of our Eureka! series, Raimundo explains how a Smart City is based on transparency, open data and insights that relies heavily on all sectors working together. Using quick wins, like reducing crime 40% in two years, Raimundo was able to get officials from all aspects of the city to see how implementing Smart City architecture helped reduce crime, traffic and pollution.
