    ITS European Congress 2019 report is now available

    The Congress’s main theme “Fulfilling ITS Promises”, was chosen to highlight how Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) can deliver affordable, impactful and innovative solutions that make daily life and mobility safer, cleaner, and more efficient. This report sums up the proceedings and highlights from this 2019 Congress and gives to mobility stakeholders pointers for future hot topics and further developments.

    A strong message from this Congress was that as a society we are firmly placed in the Fourth Industrial Revolution – with Data Connectivity as a guiding mantra: Connectivity anywhere, all the time, between everything. And as one speaker put it “If data is the new fuel then Artificial Intelligence is the new engine”.
    It was clear that technology was not the big issue for fulfilling promises – it was getting its suppliers, regulators, customers and users together to work as a partnership. A holistic approach was essential to show how issues inter-relate and it needed all stakeholders to cooperate in delivering it.
    Another message was keeping users at the heart of MaaS and focusing on what they really wanted from mobility.
