IoT Deployment of the Year

Digi International Pilot Project with Chicago Transit Authority and City  Tech Wins IoT Deployment of the Year Award | Digi International

Chicago Transit Authority Pilot Project / Digi International

Amid the COVID-19 restrictions, public transit agencies are managing highly variable ridership as well as ensuring they provide healthy, safe transportation. In response to this, City Tech and the Chicago Transit Authority deployed an IoT smart transit pilot on the 79th Street bus route to provide real-time insights on occupancy to help transit agencies proactively meet demand, reduce both passenger crowding and wait times, and provide a safe, socially distanced rider experience.

We’ve also already run the UK edition and were delighted to crown Ben Dias, Director of Data Science and Analytics at EasyJet and Ana Echeverri, director - services subscriptions for IBM as AI Innovators of the Year.

I work for an agency, can I nominate a client?

Of course! Nominate now.

Can I nominate multiple people/projects from the same business?

Yes, providing each nomination is unique this is fine. What we do not allow is duplicate nominations (same name, same reasoning multiple times) – this will not give you more chance at being shortlisted and may results in the nomination being disqualified.

Is there a deadline for nomination?

Yes, nominations will close at midnight on August 26, 2022. There is no opportunity for extension.
