Naperville requesting information on smart technologies
Illinois– The city of Naperville has issued a request for information (RFI) to bring more smart technologies to its city. The RFI asks for ideas regarding how data, design and technology can contribute to what officials are calling the next generation streetscape. The request is an attempt to see what vendors are able to bring forward to implement in Naperville through a public-private partnership (P3).
The city is interested in parking space availability sensors, accessing ride-share data to better understand travel patterns, storm sewer and water system sensors and Wi-Fi coverage. Interest in autonomous vehicle field testing has also been expressed. The request for smart cities technology was issued in early February and responses are required to be submitted by March 8. The RFI comes from a study completed in 2018.
