Congratulations! Digital Twins! Fraternal, Identical or Conjoined?
1:30 PM - 1:45 PM
Digital Twins are all the craze. Owners want them and consultants are delivering. But do they really know what they have? After their 9 month project pregrancy, are Owners prepared for their Digital Twins? Who is going to nurture (operate and manage) the Digital Twin? A surrogate, nanny (outsourced consultant) or is the Owner going to go at it alone? Do they put it up for adoption after delivery and let another deparment deal with it? Multiple parents (stakeholders) are involved and roles and responsibilies need to be defined and managed. This presentation will help you define the type of Digital Twin you need and want. We will explain how our clients are bridging the gap between the physical world and the virtual world and will define the purpose for doing so. Using Broward County Florida and the City of Coral Gables as case studies, this class will we walk you through their different approaches ( A "BIM Bottom Up" to a "SMART CITY Top Down" approach) to Smart Cities and the digitization of their built evironments. We will discuss the role BIM/ VDC play in SMART City initiatives and where SMART Cities fit into a BIM/VDC World. Through collaboration, education, innovation and simplification Governments are taking a leadership role in Smart City development and BIM/VDC adoption and integration and pushing our industry forward.
High-Definition Base Mapping and the Path Forward
1:45 PM - 2:00 PM
A key component and challenge to autonomous vehicle navigation is the creation and implementation of an HD Base map. Continental Mapping has years of experience working with clients from the private and public sectors to create these maps. From data acquisition using mobile lidar and imagery sensors to full lane model delivery for vehicle navigation and simulation models. In this talk we will discuss the process from start to finish, sighting specific project examples along with challenges and lessons learned from our experience. There will be discussion of proprietary verses opensource lane models and where the industry is heading. Conference attendees will walk away with a solid understanding of the importance of HD Base maps as they relate to vehicle navigation, the current state of the HD map industry and the importance of emerging opensource standards.
The Quiet Future of Smart Cities
2:00 PM - 2:15 PM
More than half of the world's population lives in cities, and by 2050 this number could surge to nearly 2.5 billion people. This isn't a new realization for city planners and governments' estimates show that two-thirds of cities globally are investing in smart city technology. The big question is: what will success look like for smart cities, and what role will data play in data their success? Thomas will discuss the pivotal role location data will have in transforming our current infrastructures into cities of the future. Increased accessibility to location data provides cities real-time insights on human mobility, informing smarter decisions in transportation, traffic, emergency preparedness, hospitality, retail, and industries beyond. Thomas will also explore the idea that the true impact of location data on cities is likely to be quieter than most people think. Far from being a total reinvention of city life, a true smart city will retain the elements of urban living that we all know and love (the convenience, the utilities, the corner stores) while making improvements to infrastructure and public spaces that will enhance the overall quality of life.
