Mercedes-Benz EQ Fellows: Tara Pham

Monitoring streets in order to help city planners succeed

Presented in partnership with Mercedes-Benz EQ

With experience in art, design, publishing, tech and urban design, Tara Pham is currently working to give cities a better understanding of their data, and ultimately their streets. As co-founder and CEO of Numina, Pham works with her team to attach sensors to light poles to monitor traffic—both foot and automotive—and to document the results of street-level design experiments.

As a Mercedes-Benz EQ Fellow at Summit LA, Pham represents someone developing somewhat of an accessory technology. Though Numina’s work isn’t an electric car or autonomous technology, how cities are built and reinvented are a vital component of the future of mobility.
