Last Wednesday (20 November) Shell, together with the Shanghai Municipal Science & Technology Commission (SMSTC), organized a workshop on the topic Smart Cities and Smart Accessibility.

Other companies and organizations that gave presentations and/or joint the discussion were: THNK, Amsterdam Economic Board, Fujitsu, TRIAD, Carbon War Room, TomTom and Philips.


Various speakers showed the audience technologies and solutions that are already being used now as well as examples of what awaits us in the future. Such as using devices to train bus and truck drivers in China to improve their fuel efficiency and thus lowering their CO2 emissions, or mapping traffic flows to guide drivers to less busy roads.

One presentation that definitely gave food for thought was that of Prof Dr Euro Beinat. He showed the possibilities of data science and ‘big data’. Especially how cities could make better informed decisions by using data they already had access to.
