3D Design Technology Available to Smart City Challenge Finalists
Autodesk Support will provide the technology
The US DOT has announced the support of global 3D design and engineering software for the Smart City Challenge.
The Smart City Challenge is a competition that will create a fully integrated, first-of-its-kind city that uses data, technology and creativity to shape how people and goods move in the future, according to the press release.
The five finalists will receive complimentary access to Autodesk InfraWorks 360 and training and technical support to help define their vision during the final stage and beyond that moment. The winning city will receive continued access to the software and training.
“The support of Autodesk on the U.S. DOT’s Smart City Challenge will give the five finalists access to imagine, design and simulate what a fully integrated, forward-looking transportation network looks like, and help us push the boundaries of what is possible in cities across America.” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx. “As the Department works to create a 21st century transportation network that is the strongest in the world, these types of collaborations can help make that vision into a reality. We are excited to welcome them to the Challenge.”
