- Ray O’Connor, CEO of Topcon Positioning Systems, joined Greg Bentley in the Conference Keynote to introduce constructioneering, which leverages reality modeling through joint cloud services to converge surveying, engineering, and construction;
- Jacques Lubetzki, Bureau Veritas Executive Vice President, Europe, joined Greg Bentley in the Conference Keynote to introduce inspectioneering, which leverages reality modeling to converge engineering and inspection; and
- Eckard Eberle, CEO Siemens Process Automation, during his Keynote in the Oil and Gas and Chemicals Forum will demonstrate, in Siemens COMOS Walkinside software, leveraging reality modeling to train a process plant’s operators in emergency response.
Greg Bentley said, “I thank the many constituents among users and our industry partners who have demonstrated here at The Year in Infrastructure 2016 the benefits they have realized so far, and their auspicious expectations, as reality modeling goes mainstream. I believe we will go on to see reality modeling answering the question as to how drones, mixed reality devices, the industrial Internet of Things—and in fact, “digital natives”—will converge to advance infrastructure engineers, project delivery, and asset performance.”
