53 members of our InfraTech Leaders Ecosystem – from more than 25 public and private entities – met for the first time to discuss ‘quick wins' and strategic priorities based on the World Bank's InfraTech Policy Toolkit, developed earlier this year to support the Riyadh G20 InfraTech Agenda.
V2V technologies are Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) that enable communication between vehicles to avoid accidents and and enable the optimisation of traffic flow.
A dynamic tolling algorithm recalibrates toll rates based on traffic congestion and local conditions every few minutes and is a tool to manage traffic demand through pricing.
Decentralised microgrids enable 'prosumers' to trade their surplus energy, resulting in reduced cost, increased use of renewables, and reduced demand on the energy grid.
Digital technology integrated into smart containers enable accurate near real-time monitoring and control of the condition, location and the environment of shipping containers.
Mobility as a Service (MaaS) uses a digital platform to integrates end-to-end trip planning, booking, ticketing, and payment across all modes of transportation.
Digital technology to enable regulators to measure water abstracted and use data for compliance and enforcement purposes.
Pedestrian and weather sensors installed at road intersections to adapt traffic light operation to match real time demand and safety requirements.
Advanced traffic management systems improve the performance of road services through the use of sensors, GPS, smart cameras, and weather information systems.
Remote sensors, UAVs and satellite technologies to monitor water bodies for algal blooms and provide early warnings of potential health risks to the general public.
Smart meters collect and transmit real time water usage data from users, which can be used for billing, improve water efficiency and enhance customer experience.
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) are drone-like aircrafts without an onboard pilot which can provide last mile transport similar to car-based ride hailing services.
Hyperloop is a form of high-speed transport using passenger 'pods' in low-pressure or vacuum tubes.
Drone technologies can enable remote inspection of infrastructure, thereby improving safety by eliminating hazardous tasks previously done by humans.
Smart street lighting adapts to traffic and light conditions. It can use sensors to detect cars/cyclists/pedestrians and automatically adjust lighting levels along their trip.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) to enable the early identification of health issues and tailor a response to minimise community and economic disruption.
An alternative means of conducting waste management and cleaning in stations through robots that spray cleaning chemicals (e.g. hydrogen peroxide) onto surfaces.
A combination of digital solutions and treatment technologies can enable last-mile access to clean water through water kiosks and smart metering.
This use case explores technologies that decrease Scope 1 greenhouse gas emissions from wastewater treatment processes.
Technologies that enable the capture of greasy waste from commercial and industrial facilities to convert into biodiesel.
