Cubic Corporation today announced Mick Spiers, general manager of Asia for its Cubic Transportation Systems business division, will be speaking at this year’s Transport Payments Asia Pacific Summit. Taking place September 18–19 in Manila, Philippines, the event provides a forum for transportation experts to discuss how the latest ticketing solutions are supporting new mobility services for urban transport.
Spiers will discuss the potential for Mobility as a Service (MaaS) to reduce congestion in Manila and other cities across Asia. He will also explore how artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and data analytics can be the key ingredients for building smarter cities and eliminating bottlenecks across transport networks.
“Data is now the lifeblood of any transport system and it’s helping transport operators, planners and governments to revolutionize transport networks at an unprecedented rate,” said Spiers. “Some of the world’s most congested cities, including Manila, could be totally transformed through the more effective use of data and the integration of new technologies including AI. I’m excited to discuss this with governments, mobility service providers and operators and other innovative industry partners at the summit.”
Spiers will participate in the following workshop session:
