In recent years there has been an increasing demand for new processes and procedures to capture, store and interrogate better data on infrastructure asset performance and the wider system in which it sits.

To meet this demand, there has been an explosion in the number of new initiatives, research centres, and innovation platforms that have emerged to fast-track the development and deployment of new technologies, heralding a new dawn in the construction, delivery and management of infrastructure. Techniques and tools to gather, ‘care for’ and analyse this enormous amount of data to inform business planning will be paramount for effective asset management.

Presentations will also consider how future built assets will gather data (built in sensors, crowd sourcing etc); compatibility of data across sectors and legacy asset data; and opportunities and need for collaboration and sharing relevant data.
There have been many emerging innovative technologies which are contributing to a step change in industry, from planning and construction and how we consider asset management. This event intends to showcase case studies of several current technologies being incorporated into infrastructure projects and looks ahead to what future trends will be.
