Infrastructure renovation New modes of operation and maintenance via testing, prediction, and analysis

As a developed country faced with the problem of aged infrastructure, a major question is how Japan should maintain and operate its facilities and infrastructure. Working with limited capital and manpower, Japan utilizes technologies such as sensors, cloud computing, and big data to engender efficient and accurate operation and maintenance. Such initiatives are gleaning attention from around the world. This event provides corporations with the opportunity to showcase their products and services to civil engineers from local governments in Japan and other countries, as well as corporate facility managers, attending this event to search out new operation and maintenance methods.
