Keynotes: Building the Future of Intelligent Cities
As Miami progresses through designing and defining it’s Smart Cities policies and procedures and level of maturity we were targeted with a potential real world natural disaster, Hurricane Irma. Luckily, we were spared from a direct impact as the hurricane drifted west during the mid-day of Friday September 8th and eventually making land fall later that weekend. It still had a significant impact on South Florida and we were able to incorporate GIS assets to assist in data collection.
One of the key benefits and objectives of smart city deployments is to reduce costs for governments, citizens and enterprises. One way to save money is to utilize scalable, interoperable, and vendor-agnostic platforms for all smart city solutions and exploresynergies across and between verticals to maximize efficiencies on a wider scale. Government authorities and private enterprises can also monetize their high-value data. This is exemplified in the new trend of bringing together ecosystem players and tech suppliersin dedicated marketplaces. Chordant, an InterDigital IoT Business, has been working towards these goals with oneTRANSPORT – a UK transport data marketplace.
Technology impacts every person on the planet and will continue to influence how city leaders best serve residents, visitors and businesses. Atlanta CIO Samir Saini will take you through the journey of building SMARTATL and how Midtown’s smart corridor is setting the stage in this region. His team recognizes the importance of smart cities in driving progressive change and is working to develop a strategy to support the smart city vision. Join Saini as he shares how IoT, big-data analytics, machine learning and AI provide the city with the ability to improve, find patterns and affect key outcomes.
- Exploring autonomous vehicles and self driving cars
- Sustainable solutions to increase efficiency for transportation
- Creating the right mobility services
Track: Enhancing Communities/Citizen Quality of Life & Transportation
Reduced pollution levels, improved energy conservation, downtown economic revitalization, an end to traffic congestion,and faster emergency response are among the many potential benefits the smart city offers to residents, business, and tourists. However, that promise will go unfulfilled if government officials do not first address the limitations of their aging, inefficientmass transit systems. This presentation by Connecthings Founder & CEO Laetitia Gazel Anthoine will examine why smart transportation isthe foundation of any smart city development plans. Smarter transit means the more efficient movement of residents and visitors who are better informed and connected in real-time to businesses, government agencies, school districts, etc. Connecthings has helped cities of all sizes around the world build smart transportation infrastructures. Laetitiawill be able to provide Smart Cities Summit attendees with advice they can incorporate into their own smart city development plans. The guidance she will impart will be vendor- and product-neutral, and not serve to promote Connecthings or its private and publicsector partners.

Field workers – with technology for better response time.
With the advancements of next-gen wireless communications, cities can now realize the full benefits of IoT technologies. Leveraging one of the world's largest telematics-based data-sets, Geotab's dynamic-insights and urban-analytics can be used to drastically improve city-wide safety and efficiency.
Ecosystem Center Stage (Free to Attend)
The Industrial Internet of Things is creating an entirely new era of manufacturing and supply chain management, with endless possibilities for increased efficiency, greater asset control, and autonomous shipping. Enabling this new era requires flexible connectivity and the ability to deliver multiple solutions and new services from a robust connectivity technology. But so far, issues of interoperability, scalability, and reliability have stopped IIoT technology from reaching its true potential.
In this talk, the Bluetooth SIG along with industry leaders like Silicon Labs and Smart & Green will discuss and answer questions, in a fireside chat format, about the many connectivity models required for the IIoT, including point-to-point, broadcast and mesh. Discussions will include how Bluetooth mesh networking, its latest industrial-grade solution for many-to-many connectivity, will allow IIoT developers to create a reliable platform for large-scale device networks - ideal for deploying location services, asset tracking, system monitoring, full-scale building automation, and more.
Don’t miss this excellent opportunity to be part of the discussion about the future of connectivity for the IIoT.
Join us for this fireside chat discussing how IoT enhances data to create faster, more efficient results within cities.
