Population growth is increasing the demands placed on roads and associated infrastructure around the world.

He will highlight the benefits of cloud-based platforms, from integration capabilities to cost-effectiveness, resiliency and reliability. Additionally, Bax will address how cloud hosting is being applied, the long-term advantage and its ability to support smart cities.
“Transportation infrastructure will constantly evolve in order to meet population growth,” said Bax. “It’s imperative for traffic management to be efficient now and in the future, as the only way we can maximize the lifetime performance of transport solutions is to rely on new technologies.”
Bax will take part in the following panel session:
