This presentation will explore how to build a cyber physical space by creating a complete Internet of Things, including men, machines, and city infrastructure through a variety of wireless sensor networks to accomplish real-time analysis and control by super-computers on cloud computing platforms
- The technology – the technology is there but how far can it be taken - What is realistic and what is still to futuristic?- Connecting the public and private space?
- Adoption models – especially in light of Dubai’s target of 25% of journey by 2030 - What modes – i.e. do these include the metro (and, if so, is the 25% target ambitious enough?)- What use cases?- How ready is the transport network infrastructure?- Full or partial autonomy?- Timeframe?
- Safety – especially in light of recent accidents involving autonomous vehicles - What’s the safety dividend from the move to autonomous vehicles?- Where will it come from?- How quickly can this be achieved?- What, if any, are the new safety risks – and how to mitigate?
- User acceptance and legalities – in light of the push from government
and the readiness of the technology - How ready is the public to accept these new forms of transport?- What are the regional barriers to adopting and autonomous and multi-modal transport network?
