An Introduction to Smart City Thinking

18 September 2015

For any city to be considered as smart it needs to function smoothly and to operate efficiently. In order to do this certain elements need to be in place: traffic flow needs to be optimised intelligently; its public transit system needs to be fit for purpose; its citizens need to have unrestricted access to the available mobility solutions; and all these elements need to be connected to each other and to the wider smart city ecosystem.

The proliferation of data, and the sharing of that data, will be at the heart of how a smart city will evolve and grow. With transport/mobility set to be one of the fastest-growing sectors in the smart city environment, data will play an ever-increasing role in this evolution. 

Come and exchange ideas with representatives from cities who have already embarked upon successful smart city projects, benchmark where you are now and set targets for achieving a smart city vision. Meet with experts in a wide variety of smart city issues, such as:

  • Standards
  • Smart Mobility
  • ITS
  • Internet of Things
  • Autonomous vehicles
  • EV charging
  • Smart Logistics
  • Smart Strategy
