KCI welcomes Martha Morecock Eddy as corporate practice leader for transportation technologies. She will be responsible for leading KCI’s entry into the connected and autonomous vehicle market, a firm-wide strategic planning initiative that will integrate a variety of technical disciplines, including transportation, construction management, utilities, communications infrastructure, surveying, application development, and geospatial solutions.
Emerging technologies to facilitate Smart Cities and connected and autonomous vehicles may make headlines today but will quickly become commonplace and part of our everyday lives. The core management and operation of our infrastructure is changing in the most fundamental ways, and I’m thrilled to help KCI prepare for tomorrow’s technologies.
