Up to 40 large corporations from all four regions (Americas, Asia-Pacific, Europe, and the Middle East) wanting to participate will volunteer to listen to up to eight company pitches.
  • Procurement Day - where registered attendees can hear first-hand about procurement opportunities from 46 participating government agencies around the world including the Americas, Europe and the Middle East. Each agency will present details about future procurements, allowing private sector companies to gain valuable insight on where business opportunities exist within the countries, states, regions or cities.
  • Smart Cities Pavilion - highlighting Montréal (Quebec), Columbus (Ohio), Christchurch (New Zealand), Copenhagen (Denmark), and Singapore - this dynamic and interactive area will showcase next-generation integrated mobility solutions and the latest innovations in traffic management, roadways, rail, parking, bike share, car share, transit, traveler information, connected and autonomous vehicles.

BillDr. Bill Sowell Brings "Big Data for Mobility" to South America
The use of "Big Data" in infrastructure and transportation, intelligent cities and ITS technology integration was the focus of a presentation recently delivered by Dr. Bill Sowell, Eberle Design Inc. Vice President - Business Development, at two international conferences - organized by the Argentine Road Association in Buenos Aires, Argentina and by the Civil Engineering Specialty Council and Public Infrastructure Commission in Santiago, Chile. Big data is one of the key tools for cities to meet the challenges of managing and planning mobility.

Attend ees at Dr. Sowell's presentations included members from the roads, traffic and mobility areas of the Government of the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires, and the Dean of the Faculty of Engineering and Technology and President of the Public Infrastructure Committee of the Universidad San Sebastian in Santiago, Chile.
In his presentation, Dr. Sowell noted, "As the world's population increases rapidly, it has a greater impact on the environment and generates a great demand for vital services infrastructure such as transport, energy, health and education, and public safety and roads."
Traffic data collection itself will not be able to improve traffic management in real time. "The interpretation and management of the same data is what represents the challenge. We have mountains of data, but unless we can convert it to practical information, it does not add value," Dr. Sowell said.
