 Speech Abstract:

 Sensing and Sensibility for Smart City with Intelligent Transportation​

Urbanization, including the growth of population and urban areas, is a common phenomenon in the world and exerts significant pressure on authorities. Among challenges to urban development, transportation is likely at high priority to be resolved. Around the world, it’s a common issue of time and energy wasting and even economic losses due to inefficient traffic management and lack of real-time information about parking spaces. Moreover, accidents reduction and safety enhancement are key targets for intelligent transportation.

Advanced sensors together with big data analytics will help authorities and people to monitor, consume, and even generate useful information to make transportation better and effective, as well as to lead to a smart and sustainable city.

In this speech, worldwide and Taiwan’s use cases in smart city and intelligent transportation will be discussed where sensing and data collection together with broadband infrastructure and cloud will altogether play important roles. In other words, sensor (module) vendors must pay attention to and get involved in the whole ecosystem to increase their product’s value. Sensor technology development and market trends in smart city and intelligent transportation will also be addressed.
