In celebration of World Standards Day, IEEE Standards Association held a contest exploring the 2017 theme of “standards make cities smarter.” Contestants submitted videos exploring how standards are helping to create the smart city of today and tomorrow. Each winner’s video included references to Smart Cities standards and how they address a problem. Entries were judged on their relevance to Smart Cities, creativity, originality, and quality of production.
Congratulations to this year’s winners: Sharmila Bokka, Michelle Muhammed, and Raimundo Rodulfo for the City of Coral Gables!
