The Smart City at ConExpo-Con/Agg
By Mike Osenga23 August 2019
A 10 x 22-foot smart city replica was unveiled this week by the planning team for ConExpo-Con/Agg 2020 . The replica demonstrated how a smart city, through sensors and analytics will be able to transform information into digestible data, providing knowledge for the city to work smarter.
The replica will be on display at ConExpo-Con/Agg in Las Vegas, March 10-14, 2020 and will showcase several scenarios at the Tech Experience, including;
• Different city grids and how a city responds to heat, wind and storms.
• Connectivity in the city, including 5G, sensors, telematics and IOT, and
• Impacts of construction. The jobsite of the future within the city and how equipment will communicate will also be on display.
“Our goal for the Tech Experience in 2020 is to show contractors how all of these exciting new technologies will impact their current work, how the expectations and demands of customers will change and how the current state of infrastructure may change,” said Al Cevero, senior vice president construction, mining & utility at the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM).
