We will dive into 5G, mobility, traffic, Vision Zero, situational learning, the “dilemma zone”, multi-modal approaches, and where we go from here. How are they all converging, building upon each other and leading us into the next phase of smart cities? Are we truly entering that next phase of smart cities or are we still stuck in the last one?
