Bringing Smart Mobility to Asia-Pacific
With the rise of innovation and digitalisation as the new drivers of urbanisation, cities around the world are actively looking for solutions to make their infrastructure systems more resilient, better integrated and consumer-focused.
Cities in Asia-Pacific are going through this unprecedented change: local governments start implementing smart cities policies, leverage IT infrastructure technologies, integrate software solutions in urban planning. Policy makers conceptualise the smart cities vision, applying a new set of data tools and evidence-based regulations to make urban ecosystem fit for a digital age. Consumers, as well, are changing their habits, considering environmental footprint and overall efficiency of preferred mobility options.
The FIA Smart Cities eForum will deep dive into main trends in smart cities development in Asia-Pacific, focusing on the case studies demonstrating the smart and sustainable mobility transition.
