Smart Billboards, Connected Bus Stops And Other Must-See Items At Cisco Live 2014


Smart Bus Stops

Cisco Live attendees moving throughout San Francisco next week may notice another everyday item that's gone high-tech: bus stops.

To coincide with Cisco Live, the networking giant is transforming select bus stops in San Francisco into what it calls "Connected City Interactive Bus Shelters."

Unlike your average bus stop, these connected shelters will include touch-screen digital displays that travelers can use to map out their routes around the city. The displays work by leveraging realtime data feeds to "personalize" each user's journey, Cisco said.

These smart bus stops can be found near the Moscone Center, along Mission and 4th streets, as well as around 5th and Howard streets.
