For example, Peugeot Citroen will discuss the potential of smart connected cars, while Trafiksverket will be discussing IoT-powered road use management systems to combat traffic congestion respectively, a huge problem in Jakarta and other SEA cities.”
Asia IoT Business Platform Jakarta will showcase the value and economic impact of IoT/M2M solutions, including improving private and public sector enterprise productivity, and harnessing ICT and networks to alleviate problems in dense capital cities.
