AUTOPILOT Special Interest Session (SIS)
Together with SynchroniCity, AUTOPILOT will host the session “IoT advancing Automated Mobility and Smart Cities for improved Quality of Life”. It will take place on 17 September from 11:00 to 12:00 in the Berlin room (B4 M1-2).
The urban population is growing continuously and now exceeds 75% in most EU countries. EU cities face expanding challenges for water, energy, environment and mobility management, and therefore need innovative platforms to administer their resources and services more efficiently.
The Internet of Things, which will soon see all electronic devices connected to the internet, is expected to change our lives significantly. Connected devices will generate an abundance of useful information. Big Data produced by large numbers of IoT devices will impact the future of cities and play a major role in providing possible solutions to various societal challenges.
Can mobility in cities be improved by Automated Driving and the Internet of Things to enhance quality of life? How can we deal with cyber-security, privacy and interoperability? These are questions that this Special Interest Session will answer.
