Annual Conference on Measurement Technology (III): Infrastructure Monitoring

Conference   |   past event  |  Oct 13 2016

On Thursday, October 13th the DIME Group of the World Bank and CEGA co-hosted a workshop at UC Berkeley, on new technologies to monitor performance of infrastructure investments in the developing world.

The workshop served as a forum for DIME staff and researchers to explore the use of sensor networks (IoT), remote sensing (satellite/LiDAR), and other technologies for measuring and evaluating the economic performance of infrastructure investments– from transport systems and utilities to rural infrastructure (like irrigation and warehousing). Participants included tech sector companies like Planet.com, Premise, Digital Globe, Facebook, and Cisco plus researchers from Stanford, Berkeley, UC San Diego, MIT, Portland State, and more.

Agenda

To see the agenda please look at the attached finalized version under ‘Event Materials’. The day comprised of 5 panels, each with short presentations by academics, technologists, and data providers. A series of ignite talks concluded the day. The panels’ topics included:

(1) Transport 

(2) Utilities (especially power and water) 

(3) Rural Infrastructure

(4) Urbanization

(5) Civil Infrastructure
