How smart cities will change the way we transport ourselves
27 July, 2017
Smart Cities offer a range of promises for a brighter future, none more so than a fully integrated multimodel transportation system that addresses several of the major challenges facing us. One is congestion, two is pollution, three is travel time and efficiency and four is the increase in urban populations.
To address such a wide range of issues there will be a raft of technologies both wired and wireless brought to bear along with a range of services that need securing if they are not to be open to hacking.
In this presentation we will be looking at architectures that enable the multi-trillion dollar services business, what is required to enable semi and fully autonomous driving, we look at the impact of new wireless technologies as well as exploring some of the drivers and inhibitors of such a potential market.
- Understand the key motivators for changing to Smart Cities
- Explore the issues that face the move to autonomous driving
- What infrastructure needs to be put in place and its implications
- What government support and legislation needs to be put in place
- Which technologies will underpin this in the medium and long term
