New Smart City YouTube Series with Grant Imahara Sets Out to Empower Innovation

By

According to a recent announcement Mouser Electronics is teaming up with celebrity engineer and former Mythbuster Grant Imahara for the Shaping Smarter Cities project, the newest series in the successful Empowering Innovation Together program.

The series features five videos that showcase engineers and companies from around the world that are working to make cities more intelligent and resourceful through innovative smart technologies. The new series is supported by Mouser’s valued suppliers Analog Devices, Intel, Microchip Technology and Molex.

“It’s always exciting to be at the forefront of this type of critical discussion on what the cities of tomorrow will be like,” said Grant Imahara. “Engineers, by nature, are problem solvers, so I am excited to see what these engineers around the globe are doing to shape the smart cities of the future.”

In the first Shaping Smarter Cities video, Imahara meets with WIRED Brand Lab host Michael Copeland in San Francisco to kick off the series. Together, they explore the challenges facing today’s growing cities and set the stage for how the series will unfold. Check out a clip here.

“Innovation is the true source for creating solutions to existing problems,” said Glenn Smith, President and CEO, Mouser Electronics, a leading global distributor of the newest semiconductors and electronic components. “We look forward to seeing how engineers around the world are crafting solutions to problems that are unique to their locations, and then learning how these solutions can be applied to other cities as well.”

The series will take viewers to cities in Portugal, Japan, and Southern California, covering regional challenges and the fascinating new technologies developed to address them. Mouser and Imahara will explore how buses and city vehicles with connected access points and sensors are forming a mesh network that provides free Wi-Fi and massive amounts of data to help a city run more efficiently. The series then investigates how indoor farming could be the future of agriculture in dense cities, and follows up with how augmented reality can help engineers visualize and troubleshoot construction of a massive project before it’s even built.
