AssetScape is a data-driven 3D asset management and modelling solution. Whether managing the lifecycle of an individual asset or planning a multi-asset road scheme, AssetScape provides the tools and functionality to transform your asset management strategy. 

AssetScape’s specialist tools allow you to visualise, interact with and generate data in 3D:

•          Scene generation and management tools

•          View, create and edit asset tools

•          CCTV assets with line of sight and % visibility functionality

•          An integrated 2D GIS system

•          Document, request and notification management systems

•          Water system modelling


AssetScape handles data from a range of sources and systems. Traditional attribute-based asset data is visualised within highly accurate 3D scenes, which combine orthographic imagery with height maps generated from LiDAR, DTM, and open source data. By bringing multiple datasets together in an intuitive and accessible way, AssetScape provides a platform to fully exploit their potential.

Building on this platform, ‘Digital Twins’ are a key focus for AssetScape. Digital twins are the future, offering real-time insights into existing asset portfolios and providing cutting-edge environments for innovative long-term planning and asset management decisions.

Our stand features footage of AssetScape in action, alongside a demo version of the software allowing attendees to explore AssetScape’s functionality for themselves.


Emerald Publishing For over 50 years, championing fresh thinking has been at the heart of the Emerald business. Our core ethos is to help make a difference so that little by little, those in academia or in practice can work together to make a positive change in the real world. We publish over 300 journals, more than 3000 books and over 1,500 case studies and offer a range of publishing services to help authors tell their story in a meaningful and timely way, providing innovative tools and services to build confidence and capability in impactful research.

We have recently launched Emerald Open Research, a new open access publishing platform that supports rapid publication and allows authors to achieve transparency through an open peer review process and open data policy. EOR has been developed to offer authors choice, visibility, and flexibility when it comes to open access. Come along to the Emerald stand to find out more about our Sustainable Cities Open Research gateway.


FOSA is a non-profit organization created in Washington DC in 2017 with the mission of educating industry, government and the public on the benefits of fiber optic sensing. Through webinars, videos, white papers, public presentations and public policy advocacy, the organization provides information on the use of fiber optic sensing to secure critical facilities, enhance public safety and protect the environment. In a short time FOSA has become the world’s premier trade association for fiber optic sensing technology.

Fiber optic sensing can be deployed to continuously monitor vehicle movement, human traffic, digging activity, seismic activity, temperatures, structural integrity, liquid and gas leaks, and many other conditions and activities. Fiber optic sensing is used around the world to monitor smart infrastructure, including tunnels, railways, bridges, borders, power stations and pipelines. It is also used in downhole oil and gas applications, to help characterize reservoirs and assist in well-optimization during production and completion. FOSA brings together experts across these fields with a mission to make key stakeholders aware of the technology and educated about the applications and benefits.


Clicks and Links will be showing examples of how virtual world and virtual reality technology can be used to visualise digital twins , drawing on multiple data sources including CAD/BIM., Photogrammetry and LIDAR. In particular, streaming of such data on demand from the cloud.


Beanair Recent developments in sensor technology, especially when wireless technology is considered, have opened new gates in terms of health monitoring and preemptive fault detection.

 To meet these new challenges, BeanAir, a leading German company in sensing technology, designs and manufactures smart, rugged and open-standard wireless IIOT sensors.

BeanAir Wireless IIOT sensors constitute an outstanding technology for various applications: Structural Health Monitoring, Test and Measurement, Land Surveying, Condition Monitoring, Environmental Monitoring …

Furthermore, the high level of versatility, performance, and reliability of its wireless IIOT sensors, in addition to a worldwide presence thanks to effective system integrators partners, Beanair has acquired an international outreach and continues to maintain a strong reputation with major customers in numerous sectors.

During this conference we will make a demonstration of our Wilow (Wifi Low Power) sensors, especally our new wireless combo sensors BeanDevice® WiLow®X-INC. In many Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) projects, monitoring at the same time vibration, shock and inclinations activities is crucial. Our practical solution is the BeanDevice® WiLow®X-INC, the first wireless combo sensors on the market integrating high-end accelerometer, inclinometer and shock sensors.
