  • Global trends in smart transportation   |   Kongres ITAPA 2013: Putting IT together

    Farewell to meaningless driving

    Why not to miss the presentation?
    You know it from your own experience – with company car you take a business trip to less known city. Your primary issue after arrival is where to park in order to be as close as possible to your business meeting. Julia Glidden from Great Britain says that this senseless transportation is now over.


    Executive Summary:
    Good buy engines, maps and parking meters.  Hello software.  From cars that drive and park themselves to apps that plan your journeys, find you parking and tell you when to walk and bike, this session will explore the emerging world of Smart Transport – the next great stage in Smart City thinking.
  • The Internet of Things and Open Data: A Gateway to Smart Cities   |   Kongres ITAPA 2012: Zaostrené na výsledky

    Dr Glidden will discuss the way in which new trends such as ubiquitous computing and open government data are making it easier than ever before for European cities to tap into the creative potential of citizens.  In particular, she will discuss the way in which these trends are coming together to drive the bottom-up, co-creation of  better and more effective public services.
