With the contribution of the LIFE programme of the European Union - LIFE14 ENV/GR/000611
23rd ITS World Congress - Enhancing Liveable Cities and Communities
Intelligent Transport Systems Australia (ITS Australia) on behalf of ITS Asia Pacific, ITS America and ERTICO will host the 23rd World Congress on Intelligent Transport Systems 2016 in Melbourne - Australia (Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre) on October 10th to 14th, 2016.
ITS technologies include communication, data processing and electronic technologies for in-vehicle, vehicle-to-vehicle, vehicle-to-infrastructure and mode-to-mode systems that increase transport safety and mobility, improve the sustainability of travel, reduce congestion, and improve the performance and competitiveness of all modes of transport.
The theme of the 23rd Intelligent Transport Systems World Congress is “ITS – Enhancing Liveable Cities and Communities” and it will be explored and discussed through the following sub themes:
Challenges and opportunities of Big Open data
Smart cities and new urban mobility
Automated vehicles and cooperative ITS
Vehicles and network safety
Future freight including aviation and maritime
Policy, standards and harmonization
The 2016 theme will be to showcase the contribution of ITS to the delivery of liveable cities and communities. Melbourne will be the perfect venue to demonstrate this theme as it has been named the World’s Most Liveable City five times in the last decade. Liveability is enhanced by each of the key areas of ITS contribution, in the delivery of safe transport operations, the support of efficient and productive networks and the improvement of environmental outcomes.
In the tradition of ITS World Congresses there will be executive, plenary, scientific, technical and interactive sessions, a dynamic exhibition plus technical demonstrations and tours that showcase the applications of the latest ITS technology. This will be an opportunity for policy makers, practitioners, researchers and ITS providers to share information on big data analytics, smart cities, vehicle and network safety, cooperative and automated vehicles, future freight and many other innovations in ITS. Business opportunities, social needs and improved community liveability will be high on the agenda.
