BaltimoreThe US government will focus on WiFi needs as to the recent survey at West Baltimore which reports people to want free public WiFi, for students who use it for homework and adults who like staying connected during travel.   

Sheri Parks, vice president for Strategic Initiatives at the Maryland Institute College of Art said, “People were concerned about the idea of autonomous buses, which worries authority as to it might not become a ‘party bus’ owing to lack of authority behind the wheel.”

An answer to the question posed by the researchers from the University of Maryland, College Park – what the city’s future should look like – was the internet. More than two-third of people surveyed and said that their reason to use a phone is to get internet access reported an assistant professor at the University of Maryland, College Park’s National Center for Smart Growth Research and Education.

The city’s deputy chief of operations, Shonte Eldridge said, “Anything that makes a city easier and better to live is a Smart City.”

“People of the city are very sharp-witted as they know much about the technology which they do not have. What makes them efficient is the fact of making extensive use of technology which they have.”
