AGM Keynote Speaker

The keynote speaker is Ricky Croock, CEO of VumaCam. His topic is The evolution of a smart city using CCTV surveillance.

After Vumatel pioneered last-mile fibre into residential areas, VumaCam became South Africa’s first and only video management-as-a-service provider, deploying hi-tech cameras strategically across entire suburbs on a solid fibre network to ensure a consistent, reliable and quality feed. VumaCam’s sophisticated system architecture enables intelligent video analytics; from licence plate recognition to the real-time detection of abnormal activities, this centralised video management solution rests on its secure Tier-3 datacentre.

Workshop on Mobility 4.0

The Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) is ramping up the challenges. This is true for all sectors of society and mobility is at its cutting edge. 5G connectivity is multiplying the magnitude of devices in the Internet of Things (IoT). Big Data and Cloud Computing are delivering real-time answers while machine-leaning and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are rapidly hitherto unthinkable avenues to make mobility smarter and the Platform Economy introduces novel ways of connecting Mobility as a Service (MaaS) solutions. This workshop as an initiative of the Special Interest Group on Mobility 4.0 as part of the journey of mobility in the Digital Age.
