Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) are vital to increase efficiency, safety, mobility, and tackle Europe’s growing emissions and congestion problems. ITS can make transport safer, more efficient, and more sustainable by applying information and communication technologies to all transportation mode. Moreover, the integration of existing technologies can create new services.
The full potential of ITS can only be achieved if deployed worldwide. Research has a major role to play in developing and deploying key ITS technologies, and contributing to standardisation, interoperability between transport modes and countries, and cross-border continuity of services.
On the other hand, deployment of Intelligent Transport Systems also faces some barriers, some of which are technological. Deployment costs, funding restrictions that prevent investment facilitation, investments, privacy and liability concerns, uncertain demand, and lack of legislation have limited the roll-out of ITS implementation in several situations.
Limited communication or too ‘technical’ communication on the benefits of new technologies to those who make decisions about whether to invest in new technology development (policy makers), can also be an obstacle for faster deployment of ITS. Policy makers need a clear description of the benefits of new technologies including cost-benefit analyses that would enable them to compare traditional solutions with the new ones.
Lack of or limited cooperation between research and industrial sectors is another aspect which is slowing down the uptake of research results by the market. It is not often that research results are likely to be developed in the short- or even medium-term, but this is not always understood by the industry that wants to obtain quick results from their investments in ITS.
The objective of the conference is threefold:
1.To enable researchers in ITS to share their achievements and findings in different areas of Intelligent Transport Systems and logistics
2.To bring together the relevant ITS stakeholders and to address the following questions:
What role has research and end users in the development of ITS solutions?
How can the industry maximise the use of research outcomes?
Should ITS be a priority for a regional smart specialisation strategy?
Can there be intelligent logistics operations in city distribution process?
3. Raise collaboration among different research fields
Logistics and operations management – Impact of operations management in city logistics process – the impact of logistics operation on traffic, problems of loading\unloading operations in city distribution process
Architecture and Urbanism – Raise discussion on intelligent urban construction for smart mobility. What is the role of architecture in ITS and smart cities?
This event is organized by EAI.
EAI – European Alliance for Innovation is a non-profit organization and a professional community established in cooperation with the European Commission to empower the global research and innovation, and to promote cooperation between European and International ICT communities.
EAI’s vision is to foster excellence in research and innovation on the principles of transparency, objectivity, equality, and openness. Our guiding principle is community cooperation to create better research, provide fair recognition of excellence and transform best ideas into commercial value proposition.
EAI‘s mission is to create an environment that rewards excellence transparently, and builds recognition objectively regardless of age, economic status or country of origin, where no membership fees or closed door committees stand in the way of your research career.
Through these shared values, EAI leads the way toward advancing the world of research and innovation, empowering individuals and institutions for the good of society to fully benefit from the digital revolution.
