While many technologies are employed to make cities smart, one assemblage of technologies has not been used to their fullest extent; 5G, MEC ( Multi-Access Edge Computing), Maps for Machines, and 4D spatial data infrastructures. This talk will present a multi-application proof of concept undertaken by Voxelmaps and Verizon to determine the viability of leveraging new low latency network technology in the creation of near real-time HD maps and Digital Twins.
