Intelligent Infrastructure Futures Technology Forward Look – The Scenarios – Toward 2055

The Foresight Project on Intelligent Infrastructure Systems (IIS) set out to examine the challenges and opportunities for the UK in bringing “intelligence” to its infrastructure – the physical networks that deliver such services as transport, telecommunications, water and energy. In particular, the project explore how, over the next 50 years, we can apply science and technology to the design and implementation of intelligent infrastructure for robust, sustainable and safe transport, and its alternatives.

This report describes the four scenarios and related “system maps” that were developed to investigate how science and technology might be applied to infrastructure over the next 50 years.
