ABOUT THIS TRACKER:
4
Using policy to address the the myriad of issues related to smart city technologies --data security, privacy, intellectual property, public accountability--requires a strong structure of engagement and openness by city governments. There have been many different ways cities throughout the country have addressed these issues related to smart city technology. Some cities are developing smart city policies, others are passing ordinances regulating new and old surveillance technologies, while others yet are developing road maps outlining a vision and guiding principles. Regardless of the document type, one constant is that cities should codify methods for public accountability and disclosure of new and pending projects in order to build trust and ensure that these technologies are used responsibly

We reviewed the publicly available practices cities have employed to address these concerns and conducted interviews with the staff and local stakeholders from various cities, to develop an understanding of the regulatory environment related to smart city technologies.

This collection is not final or comprehensive, but begins to showcase the ways in which cities are recognizing the challenges and opportunities smart technologies will present.
