Multidisciplinary team awarded $1.1 million grant to focus on smart city infrastructure

Smart cities with integrated power grids, wireless communications, and intelligent transportation networks could improve everyday life for millions of people, but they would also be vulnerable to any number of cascading failures, due to natural disasters, day-to-day operations, or malicious attacks. These problems could lead to power outages and disruption of communications, which could bring an entire city to a screeching halt.
