Presentation and debate with Dan Byles Chair of SmarterUK.

With urban populations growing and funding resources shrinking, cities are facing increasing challenges to meet the needs of their people. What are these challenges and how can smart technology contribute to solutions for economic development by delivering service more efficiently with lower environmental footprint, and in doing so raising the quality of life in cities? 

There are growing numbers of smart grid and smart building pilot projects around the world that demonstrate smart city technologies and how they can bring significant financial and resource savings by automatically optimising energy, infrastructure, and digital networks in a way that was unimaginable just a few short years ago. 

This is a Smarter Cities discussion and debate with Dan Byles, Chair of SmarterUK and Vice President of Living PlanIT, with Plymouth University’s Institute of Digital Art & Technology (i-DAT) Exeter's Co-Cars “on-demand low carbon smart mobility for all” and Plymouth City Council.
