AT&T and the city of Chicago will begin piloting smart bus shelters and information kiosks — both with free Wi-Fi — within the next couple of months, the company said Wednesday at the Consumer Electronics Show, according to The Chicago Tribune.
The touchscreen kiosks will contain USB charging ports and offer information on tourist spots. They could also potentially include restaurant offers and weather and public safety alerts.
Brenna Berman, Chicago's chief information officer, said two to three connected bus shelters will be installed, while five kiosks will be built. The locations of the tests will be announced in the next month.
