SA Infrastructure series: Intelligent infrastructure

Nov 17
CEDA together with Siemens will lead a discussion on intelligent infrastructure - from reliable, economic and efficient power infrastructure to smart buildings to efficient traffic systems and driverless cars. The event will bring together international thought leaders, including Dr Roland Busch to provide insight on the potential productivity gains that can be delivered through intelligent infrastructure.

Martin Haese, Lord Mayor of Adelaide
Hon Stephen Mullighan MP, Minister for Transport and Infrastructure

Event overview

Across the world, infrastructure systems are coming under increasing pressure due to urbanisation, globalisation and climate change. The scale of the challenge calls for a new, more intelligent approach to infrastructure.

Transport and infrastructure can no longer be viewed in isolation, with the purpose of place and the importance of creating flourishing and productive communities becoming more important as economies are transformed by knowledge-intensive activities

At this event, we look at how technology and innovation can get more out of the infrastructure we have and make the most out of what we build from driverless cars, smart grid technologies, intelligent transport systems and creating communities and place.
