Corpus Christi and Intel's Digital Communities Initiative

Intel's program, Digital Communities Initiative, "is helping progressive cities, regions, and communities worldwide enhance quality of life for their citizens with advanced government services based on broadband connectivity." Corpus Christi is one of three cities used as models. Corpus Christi will initially install an 18.5 square mile mesh network. City vehicles will be tracked via the network, police cars have the ability to monitor and control real-time streaming video, building inspection data can be updated while in the field, and utility meters can be read via Wi-Fi devices without going to the locations.
