Cycling in a Smart City – how infrastructure can communicate with bikes
Wednesday 11.45 am – 01.00 pm / Block C4
One requirement for tomorrow’s cities is to become “smart cities”. This forum will show examples of how infrastructure communicates with bicycles, for example, to give priority to bicycle traffic or to avoid accidents. But how do you make a city digital? During the forum, possible actions for the implementation of a smart city will be highlighted to take home.
