Innovative, Focused Audience Event
Municipal decision-makers are used to having new technologies disrupt their cities with the promise of increased efficiency and productivity for citizens. Smart cars and roads, smart irrigation, traffic flow and safety systems, enhanced municipal services like trash and parking, enabled capabilities for first responders and intelligent lighting are the promise of the Internet of Things (IoT) for cities and their citizens.
- How big is IoT for Smart Cities and Transportation?
- What is the overall opportunity?
- How do I take advantage of these opportunities and better our community?
Estimates suggest the answers to the first two questions are: (1) 30+ BILLION objects, and (2) $1+ TRILLION by 2025 with cities being major consumers. The third question is easier to answer, yet complex and hard to define, as there are many subsections:
- Better understand in real time condition of infrastructure, quality of operations and opportunities for targeting limited resources on improvements.
- What, when, how, why and where do we connect things?
- What do we do with all of the data that we generate after connection?
- How will these connections impact the rest of the municipal infrastructure?
- How can IoT help us manage our community better?
- How do I get started?
