A Meet the Boss roundtable brought to you by HERE Technologies

The global urban population, currently around 3.9bn people, is expected to grow to around 6.3bn by 2050 and comprise of 70% of the total projected global population. This means that we must ensure the right infrastructure is in place to enable such worldwide city development. Not only that, but sustainability is becoming a crucial factor in smarter city infrastructure planning, whilst the increase in smart city initiatives to not only meet global climate goals, but to make places less congested, safer, greener and more livable, becomes a business priority.

Digital and technology leaders recognize the importance of leveraging a digital model in order to build, plan, analyze, manage and maintain infrastructure. 5G MEC and real time, low latency data and automation are becoming key factors in faster processing and better insights, driving the roads of the future using geospatial data and tools.

So, what are the challenges of city and infrastructure planning? How can real time 3D, HD and LiDAR data help improve efficiency and optimize resources? And, how can we collaborate to aggregate and exchange data?
