Click here  Australian Intelligent Transport Systems Summit - September 27 2017 - September 28 2017 - Brisbane, Australia

Solar powered cars, drones and the Southern Hemisphere’s only Hyperloop project are among the transport technology initiatives being considered to transform mobility in Australia.

Intelligent transport systems (ITS) leaders from American, Asia Pacific and Europe will join the Australian smart transport community to explore current and future technologies at the Australian Intelligent Transport Systems Summit, 27-28 September 2017, at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Hosted by ITS Australia in partnership with Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads, the key focus areas are Connected and Automated Vehicles, Mobility as a Service and Big Data, and Transport for Smart Cities. The ITS Summit is Australia’s largest annual industry-led ITS conference.

Smart communities continue to expand the numbers and types of IoT applications they use for operations and local community services. Smart metering, parking, public transportation, and street light applications are being enabled by current broadband networks and future 5G technologies that spur innovation and investment in the smart community ecosystem.

At the same time, major auto manufacturers and other transportation technology companies are developing intelligent transportation solutions and redefining themselves as integral to next generation mobility of people and things. These companies are beginning to offer services that reach beyond the car to connect and interact with the community, main street, and home.

Smart communities, along with intelligent transportation, require connectivity networks that deliver comprehensive, ubiquitous, broadband and low-band capacity that enable a growing variety of IoT applications.

Join city officials, automotive thought leaders, network infrastructure companies and IoT application developers for informative and engaging discussions on connected community development.


Click here  Autonomous Vehicle Safety Regulation World Congress 2017 - October 23 2017 - October 24 2017 - The Suburban Collection Showplace, Novi, Mi, USA

Defining the legal guidelines, rules and regulations for autonomous vehicles

There are still no universal rules or regulations in which autonomous vehicles can operate, and the potential legal issues surrounding autonomous vehicles are undefined. This conference is to discuss and explore how to create a regulatory framework to enable further public testing of autonomous and driverless vehicles. It will also debate what regulatory and legal challenges must be addressed before autonomous vehicles can be purchased and used by consumers. Over the course of the two days, the conference will address a number of key unresolved issues such as:

• Adapting current safety standards and regulations to allow further testing of autonomous vehicles on public roads

• Assessing liability in accidents involving autonomous vehicles
Establishing an international agreement on rules and regulations for autonomous vehicles

• Safely integrating autonomous vehicles with other road users
Code of ethics for autonomous vehicles in the event of an unavoidable accident

• Authorising police and law enforcement agencies to intercept and remotely stop self-driving vehicles

• Allocating civil and criminal liability in the event of a cyberattack, vehicle hacking or deliberate interference with an automated vehicle

The Montréal World Congress 2017 will be held at the Palais des congrès Convention Center in Montréal, Québec, Canada, in November next year. It will be the event where policy, real world deployment and future ideas come together to advance integrated mobility, smart cities and the next generation of transportation through intelligent transportation systems. Autonomy and connectivity, artificial intelligence, infrastructure developments, cloud technologies, data, privacy, cyber issues, traffic management, smart city deployment efforts, research and academic initiatives, and a look at the world’s view of public policy around the next generation of transportation will all feature at the event.

The conference organizers are planning to feature live demonstrations of ITS technologies. The City of Montréal will create a virtual testbed on the streets adjacent to the Palais des congrès Convention Center, which will include an arterial loop circling the Palais des congrès and a section of a nearby limited access highway that will be equipped with DSRC roadside units integrated with local signal controllers to support demonstrations of connected vehicle technologies.

A highlight of the event will be the Smart Cities Pavilion. As a designated section of the Exhibit Hall, the Pavilion will highlight Smart Cities from around the world, continuing the discussion and debate around how policy can advance the future of integrated mobility, how transportation is moving to the center of the Internet of Things and how technological solutions and the IoT are changing cities. It will serve as a learning laboratory and feature information about leading international smart cities including Columbus, Ohio (US); Copenhagen, Denmark; Montréal, Canada; and Singapore.

Cross Roads WRM 2017 is being held for the first time in India, in Delhi, on 14-17 November 2017.

The issues we all face with regards to transport and mobility are too complex to be tackled alone. Great challenges require greater collaborations. We do not have the answers to everything yet - but we do have the platform: Cross Roads.

The International Road Federation’s (IRF) Cross Roads is the global platform to facilitate the cross-pollination of ideas among pioneers, businesses and organizations. By connecting high-tech companies, leading experts in the field and governments, we can make mobility a positive reality for everyone.

The theme for the Cross Roads WRM 2017 is Safe Roads and Smart Mobility: Engines of Economic Growth. Cross Roads WRM 2017 is held once every four years, in different cities across the world, and includes an exhibition, a conference, a Young Professional Lab and an Innovation Cafe.

The conference will cover a wide range of topics that are important for the transport and mobility sectors. The conference will include four keynote plenary sessions with eminent and well known speakers, 44 parallel sessions with papers from academics and practitioners from across the world, and four sessions with papers from the IRF Young Professionals.
