A huge problem in NYC is traffic jams. Who likes to spend an hour of their day stuck in the middle of the BQE anyway!?Apart from these traffic jams, they are unhealthy for the environment. When a car
is idle, it burns up more fuel than it would at the first ten minutes of driving or the driving itself. And of course, as many know, burning up fossil fuels has harmful effects to the environment. It pollutes the air, which One, it encourages global warming. Secondly, you are being very ineffiecient with your resources, which is something that a SMART city is against. As New York City being a big city, we have an influence into Global Warming. We NEED to change our regulations NOW.
We learned about these satellite that are useed for many things mostly used for veiwing the earth on gps’s there was two ways that the satellite orbits the earth first it is statinary which stays focus on one side of the earth it does so by moving at the same speed
as the earth the other is poler orbiting where it does curcle the earth. We also learned that some times that these satillites have a problem with them and cost millions to fix that would cost little if check on earth so are just left as space trash that could affect the new satelites like they could possibly crash.
Today we learned about wirless communication and how it is used around citys and useing it to help with cellphone interferences and how 4G isnt exactly
what it seems
Wireless Communication has made people interact and communicate better through Wi-Fi systems. Many wireless communication sends signals to give information or communicate in order to get things or need people to know there is traffic or an accident up ahead. Additionally people use many electronics such as cell phones, smart phones, laptops, and many others which use wireless communication to provide things for them or others. There are also many standards for things such as 1G, 2G, 3G, 4G, and now 5G came out with many more faster ways to get data transmission speeds better each G(Generation) so we can use our cell phones in more data demanding ways. And each generation is for people to buy for more better usage
for themselves or others.
Today, we learned that when people send signals to others in order to communicate, companies like NASA control these signals because they are not natural signals and and example of a natura signal
is when the moon is up and it is where it is. These satellites also help take photographs of the Earth every time it orbits around the sun and when the Earth orbits around the sun, there are two ways which would be polar-orbiting and geostationary. Satellites help people communicate and send signals and we also learned that polar-orbiting moves around and takes pictures while the geostationary takes pictures of certain places in Earth.
Today in class we are working on transportation. I learned alot. We are getting ready
to build our cities. We worked on planning the way our cities transportation going to work.
On Saturday, May 18 we presented our city. I really enjoyed the Smart Cities program. It taught me many things along the lines of engineering. I hope i will be able to use this knowledge later in my
Today we were working on our own city that we are creating. I was part of the building group making a building.We then
had to make an LED light up by making a circuit. This lesson was very fun and i enjoy smart cities a lot.
We learned how to count binary numbers! It was extremely interesting. The way you have to add 0s and 1s is so different and I really enjoyed learning something new However, i hope we do more stuff with the board and LEDs and etc. I enjoy plugging in the wires! This type of counting is extremely different than regular counting! Mr. Sepher taught us and
gave us several different examples regarding binary counting. I enjoyed how he taught this topic because i felt as if we were being involved in the context more than other classes. I am looking forward to other classes and being taught like this again.
