Build Safe, Sustainable, and Smart Infrastructure with Digital and Physical Technologies
Leverage the powerful combination of physical improvements and digital advancements in your upcoming projects to create a smart infrastructure that builds equity in transportation, boosts economic growth, and supports climate responsibility.
Bring Your Smart Infrastructure Project to Life
From the first roads and canals before industrialization to the national US highway system of the 1950s to the technological innovations of the 21st century, infrastructure is constantly evolving to both support and drive new economic and societal advancements. The next several decades will be no different, as new, digital smart infrastructure—which combines technological innovations, like cloud, 5G, AI, and IoT, with physical infrastructure for land, water, and air transportation—establishes a foundation from which communities, cities, and governments can create a more sustainable, affordable, safe, and equitable world.
Funding from legislation, such as the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) in the US, offers an opportunity to rethink and redefine what infrastructure is and can be. Delivering transformational, modern infrastructure starts with a solid strategy and plan that raises the quality of life for all citizens, from optimizing citizen outcomes to creating greater economic opportunity to achieving climate resiliency goals.
Whether you are in the initial stages of developing a smart infrastructure strategy or looking for deployment-ready digital infrastructure solutions, Intel and our partners are here to help you:
