ITS in the Urban Environment as Opportunity for Cities to foster Growth and Jobs

Intelligent transport systems (ITS) apply information and communication technologies to improve mobility for people and goods, and transport and traffic management. In cities, ITS applications help improve traffic flow, reduce congestion and emissions and enhance public transport. And now Mobility as a Service (MaaS) brings users a total package of personalised on-demand mobility services to fulfill all their travel needs through a single account. ITS brings new players to the market, creating opportunities for jobs and growth. The seminar will present latest best practice and allow the audience to discuss with leading experts and policy makers in the field.
