Big Data, Smart Cities:
How the Confluence of the IoT, Networks, and Big Data Can Change Everything
The University of California Institute of Transportation Studies (UC ITS) and the UC Center Sacramento are pleased to present a timely policy forum series that brings together leaders in academia, the public sector, industry, and non-governmental organizations to discuss the latest thinking and scientific insights on a range of transportation challenges facing California. All four forums will be held from 12:00 - 1:30 pm at the UC Center Sacramento located at 1130 K Street, Sacramento CA. There is no cost to attend though registration is required. Lunch will be provided. Both registration and lunch will begin at 11:30am.
Transportation has grown into a complex “system of systems” facing aging infrastructure, increasing operating costs, fading control over private data, a growing array of entrepreneurial services, and a host of interlinked socio-economic issues of concern. Growth in cities today fundamentally contradicts sustainability, but at the same time, modern technology has brought to life unprecedented opportunities to make transportation more efficient, resilient, and adaptive. UC ITS researchers will present the possibilities and demonstrate connected mobility modeling for real-time multimodal traffic management as an example.
Moderator: Professor Alexandre Bayen - Director, Institute of Transportation Studies, UC Berkeley

UC ITS BACKGROUND: Established by the California Legislature in 1947, the UC ITS represents a network of faculty, researchers, staff and students dedicated to advancing the state of the art in transportation engineering, planning, and policy development in California. UC ITS has grown from a single-campus program at UC Berkeley to include units at UC Davis, UC Irvine, and UCLA. Since 1992, the four ITS branches have expanded their research, education, and outreach programs to form the foremost university transportation research center in the world.
