- CITE is an above ground, unpopulated, fully operating, and real-world lab environment representative of a mid-sized American city. It will provide a legacy environment where new technologies can be tested at scale, allowing researchers and manufacturers to manage the unpredictability of product performance before being introduced into the market, and to the population at large.
- The hallmark of CITE is the City Lab, a full-scale, fully functional test city. City Lab will be a representative example of a modern day, mid-sized American city. It will occupy 400 acres and include urban, suburban and rural zones as well as the corresponding infrastructure. It will be pre-wired for data collection and the ability to simulate system-wide scenarios and then draw data from such activities.
- Development was supposed to begin in 2012, but was cancelled shortly thereafter. Construction and planning was resumed by Pegasus late last year.
