Sacramento is a city where innovation and technology deliver services that are streamlined, secure, and easily accessible by all, a city where customers and citizens connect with government openly and interactively when and where they want.
The Sacramento Urban Technology Lab (SUTL) is where government, academia and industry collaborate to transform Sacramento into that of a living laboratory for entrepreneurs, advanced technology businesses, and academic institutions to test, develop, and scale their ideas, products, and services.
ATOS Labs is a public-private consortium of government agencies and connected and autonomous vehicle technology companies working in partnership to co-develop interoperable protocols and standards. This work will soon enable the Sacramento Region to become a leading proving ground for the safe testing and deployment of these technologies.
Sacramento is creating a foundation for creative, nimble partnerships that can improve City services, meet adopted City goals, and provide public benefit. The City's Demonstration Partnerships Policy provides a framework for innovative demonstration partnerships, allowing the City to test, evaluate, and demonstrate innovative solutions.
The City has been working with Verizon for the past year to install small cell towers on more than 200 street lights. Using high-frequency waves transmitted from the towers, 5G wireless offers data speeds similar to traditional fiber cable technology. Eventually available as free Wi-Fi in 27 parks, the network will expand digital access for underserved communities.
Electrify America and the City of Sacramento announced new projects that will increase access to zero-emissions vehicles (ZEV) in the Sacramento region, expand ZEV technology use, and prepare the City for future electric vehicle adoption.
