T&DI Session #1: Application of Technology in Transportation Part 1
Smart Cities and Smart Transportation Systems must have the civil engineering codes and standards to make them work. As master integrators of urban and rural systems, civil engineers are not only responsible for major infrastructure components, but also for the "last yard" between our built environment and 4th Industrial Revolution technologies like 5G, Internet of Things, advanced sensors and big data analytics. Those connections must be bridged using strictly defined ASCE codes and standards, or they will become the “weak link” in Autonomous Vehicles, Electric Vehicles and Charging Infrastructure and Urban Aerial Systems.
APPLICATION OF TECHNOLOGY IN TRANSPORTATION – PART 1
- What are the first ASCE Engineering Standards for Smart X (“ESX”), and how will they help to strengthen the connections between built infrastructure and 4th Industrial Revolution technologies like 5G, Internet of Things, advanced sensors, big data analytics?
- Who defines the data that must be exchanged in smart systems? Who owns the data? Who maintains and updates the data?
- What regulatory agencies are involved in the oversight and governance of Autonomous Vehicles, Electric Vehicles and Charging Infrastructure and Urban Aerial Systems?
