Future of safe and smart infrastructure
Wednesday 5 April , 16:00 – 17:00, Neptune Room

Despite the recent advances in technology, the number of casualties and infrastructure failures still remains too high. Three related research initiatives are currently working towards a common goal of increased safety and optimized management on road, rail and inland waterway networks. Topics include the use of smart nano- and micro sensors, communication and harvesting modules mounted into easy-to-install and –remove low cost on road units, new approaches to make railway level crossings safer and a safety framework to support optimised decision-making with regard to the management of transport infrastructure assets.
