The rewards of creating a data-driven transportation system that makes optimal use of technology are tremendous - improved safety, reduced gridlock and smog, easier parking, improved public transit and, in the final analysis, more liveable cities.
From placing sensors and nodes in asphalt and on lights to control traffic signals, to partnering with private companies, to establishing Vehicle2V and V2Infrastructure connectivity, to assisting vulnerable citizens and deploying autonomous vehicles, the possibilities for improved mobility are endless and astonishing - and the time for planning and development is now!
There are, however, significant challenges along the way in operationalizing big data and determining the right technology. You've got to know what citizens want and how to capture data from multiple sources and extract meaningful, accurate insights in real time. You've got to know what other municipalities, large and small, are doing to advance their transportation systems to the next level including providing multiple travel options as an alternative to cars, planning and dedicating resources to active transportation, protecting data and privacy with cyber security; visualizing the future of transit and more.
INFONEX's two-day program on Smart Transportation for Intelligent Cities will be the ideal forum for discussing and sharing ideas with others as you move forward. A faculty of experienced transportation experts will share insights derived from their own journeys and share with you what they have learned about improving the quality of life for citizens through improved transportation.
Attendees will learn how cities of different sizes and stages of development are moving forward, how data analytics and technology are being used to improve urban transportation, what has worked and what might work in your own organization. From progress in the City of Toronto, to innovation and success in smaller municipalities like Innisfil and Stratford, to the best thinking on the future of municipal transit, active transportation, integrated mobility plans and automated vehicles, this is an opportunity to learn from others and develop best possible plans for your own municipality.
Take a few moments to review the agenda. Then call us immediately to reserve your place. We look forward to seeing you.
