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.

ITS Australia Chief Executive Susan Harris said the Summit theme, Transforming Transport reflects the rapidly changing transport landscape of today while introducing future mobility technologies.

“The Intelligent Transport Systems industry has never been stronger and increasingly plays a vital role in the safety, efficiency and sustainability of freight and people movements.

“Technology is changing so fast it not only presents opportunities to enhance the liveability of our cities and communities, it creates new and future business opportunities. Australia has the capability to capitalize on these.

The ITS Summit will include more than 40 Australian and international speakers, in addition to keynotes, exhibitions, technical tours and networking opportunities.

Jonathan Myers, Head of Growth, Innovations and Partnerships, Keolis Downer, described the Summit as ‘mission critical’.

“Digitalization is influencing all aspects of mobility, from the customer experience to new connected vehicles and infrastructure. We need to distinguish sound strategic opportunities that will transform the way we travel from technical fads.”

Dr Steven Shladover, Program manager for the California Partners for Advanced Transportation Technology, at the University California is an international keynote speaker.

“This is an opportunity to talk about the lessons we can learn from previous experiences with automation of driving and what they signify for the future development of driving automation systems.”

Josh Keegan, Founder and CEO of the World Drone Challenge said “If you think drone technology won't have an impact on transportation systems and infrastructure, think again.”
Australia is a global leader in intelligent transport systems. It has an international reputation for transport technology development and deployment, and there are opportunities for future collaboration and initiatives, as outlined in the ITS Australia Report, Smart Transport for Australia. The Report identifies at least 40 focus areas for governments, industry and academia.

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.
