21 Oct Smart Infrastructure: The Future
Royal Academy of Engineering (UK) (RAEng) 2012
In October 2011, The Royal Academy of Engineering held a roundtable meeting to investigate the use and meaning of ‘smart’ and ‘smart infrastructure’. This report provides a summary of what was discussed. A working definition of ‘smartness’ was agreed, applications of smartness that have benefited different industries were identified and discussion held on whether there were principles that could be shared between sectors. Potential barriers to a smarter future were also examined.
