Alphabet’s Sidewalk Labs joins the Smart City Challenge

In addition to building a mobility platform, Sidewalk Labs will install over 100 kiosks in four neighborhoods (approximately 25 blocks) of the winning city. These kiosks will provide free Wi-Fi and access points for disadvantaged citizens that cannot afford to get mobility information by other means. This mobility platform, co-developed with Sidewalk Labs and the seven cities, offers unprecedented citywide transportation analytics to help cities understand congestion and identify areas underserved by transit, using aggregated, anonymized data from billions of miles of trips, including proprietary data from Waze and Google Maps.
