Technology - Virtual Roundtable

Creating a smarter city infrastructure with smarter tools

5th October 2021 | 10:00am - 11:30am ET | 3:00pm - 4:30pm BST
How to optimize infrastructure planning and maintenance, enable sustainable mobility and develop 5G roads of the future using geospatial data and tools?

A Meet the Boss roundtable brought to you by HERE Technologies

Infrastructure planning continues to be fraught with challenges, most notably by the estimated $40 trillion global funding gap (HERE Technologies, 2021), which has been further exacerbated following COVID-19, rapid urbanization and climate change.

The sudden decline in infrastructure usage during the pandemic caused a rapid revenue reduction, highlighting the need to accelerate technology adoption to address these widening cost issues.

It’s clear business need to act now to optimize infrastructure planning and maintenance and enable sustainable mobility, but how can we make smarter cities a reality in the current climate? How can the use of geospatial data and tools help develop 5G roads of the future? And how can we open up collaboration opportunities across industries and the public and private sectors to enable such projects?

Join HERE Technologies and a select group of industry peers to discuss your city and infrastructure planning challenges, explore tools and data sets that can drive efficiency and optimization and understand how to better meet social responsibility and sustainability objectives.
