Living Labs

Living Labs

Living Labs are common in Smart Cities throughout the world. In these spaces the city is able to test new technologies on a trial basis in a real-life context with a user-centred approach. Locals are able to get information and provide direct feedback about the project as they progress. If the technologies prove to be useful they can then be expanded to other regions of the city, if required. 

Mississauga currently has five Smart City Living Labs

Cities and neighbourhoods grow and evolve over time, as do broader factors such as technology, the environment, the economy. Smart City technologies are intended to meet the needs of each neighbourhood and the people that live and work there.
