“Real Transportation Solutions for Smarter Cities” 
– The confluence of increasing urbanization, global concern about climate and energy, and ever-tightening budgets to finance infrastructure development is driving the need for new models in transportation and traffic management.  Although much media attention here in Silicon Valley is focused on Uber and Google’s self-driving cars and Elon Musks’ Hyperloop concept that are decades into the future, many smart transportation solutions have already been deployed today using Siemens technology – and they are done in partnership with the public sector. This talk will provide real life examples of smart traffic solutions – from adaptive signal technologies used in many US cities, the first Connected Vehicle test bed in Ann Arbor, Michigan and a large deployment in Tampa, Florida, dynamic tolling in Israel, a traffic management center that includes an integrated mobility platform and mobility monitor in Berlin, and low emission zone traffic enforcement in London.
