Connected Cities for Smart Mobility towards Accessible and Resilient Transportation (C2SMART)  is a U.S. Department of Transportation Tier 1 University Transportation Center (UTC) for research, education, workforce development, and technology transfer activities. The main research priority of this solution-oriented center is “Mobility of People and Goods in Urban Areas” with a focus on “Smart and Connected Cities.” Rather than just focusing on developing technologies to make a city smarter, C2SMART is dedicated to a related critical step: how to connect these disparate technologies with cities of different population and infrastructure scales and different systems of systems. The NYU Tandon-led UTC includes University of Washington at Seattle, University of Texas El Paso, Rutgers University, and City University of New York, which explore and field-test innovations in their home cities.
