How DC's smart city
initiatives don't sacrifice
privacy for safety.


In 2016, DC launched Pennsylvania Avenue 2040 (PA2040), a smart city initiative with the goal of enhancing citizen experience.

  • Enhance public safety and introduce other smart city solutions without compromising citizen privacy
  • Understand how all solutions work individually and in concert with each other
  • Study how the solutions can translate successfully from urban area deployment to different types of neighborhoods


Intelligent Lighting and Intelligent Video solutions deployed.

  • 76 intelligent core node LED luminaires
  • 20 intelligent video nodes for parking management
  • Mapquest integration with intelligent video nodes that displays available parking


Immediate energy savings and improved maintenance reporting from Intelligent Lighting and increased visibility to available parking from Intelligent Video.

  • DC's goal is to replace all 75,000 high pressure sodium lamps with LED smart node luminaires
  • Based on analytics captured from existing video nodes, DC decided to implement Verizon's Intersection Safety Analytics
  • Solutions are providing valuable metadata that will assist in meaningful infrastructure planning
