On 14 November 2018 Cora van Nieuwenhuizen, Dutch Minister of Infrastructure and Water Management, will open the bi-annual European conference on traffic management called ITS Forum 2018. She will be accompanied by Federica Polce – Coordinator of the Platform on behalf of the Italian Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport. Rijkswaterstaat officials will interview Matthew Baldwin, Deputy Director-General of the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Transport and Mobility (DG MOVE).
The ITS Forum offers a varied and interesting programme centred around the theme “Traffic Management in a changing world”. High level keynote speakers from all over Europe will contribute to the programme among whom Herald Ruijters (EC Director Investment, Innovative & Sustainable Transport – DG MOVE) with a keynote on past, present and future perspectives of the European core network, and Pierpaolo Tona (European Commission – Innovation and Networks Executive Agency – INEA) introducing the ITS Programme of the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF). The closing session will see an interview of Isabelle Vandoorne (EC Deputy Head of Unit on Sustainable & Intelligent Transport – DG MOVE) jointly with key experts and high level stakeholders in the field of ITS and mobility (CEDR, IBTTA, FIA, ERF, POLIS).
Traffic management in a changing world
New technologies such as connected, cooperative and automated driving will drastically change the world of traffic management. Traditional ITS (Intelligent Transport Systems) will increasingly be complemented by C-ITS (Connected ITS) and other new technologies, allowing new travel services to emerge, such as Mobility as a Service (MaaS). And with larger cities and more complex, busier networks, different road authorities need to collaborate and work with industry (car manufacturers, ITS industry, content providers) and knowledge partners. In other words, traditional traffic management and roles are changing.
The main theme “Traffic Management in a changing world – Digitalisation, Multimodality, Smart Infrastructures” reflects a number of objectives of the Forum. Digitalisation and smart infrastructures will lead to more data, from vehicles and from infrastructure, which will be used to make transport safer and more efficient. Digitalisation will also change the way traffic management centres will operate, e.g. by using smart cameras, using data from other (private) sources, using big data. But also by providing individualized route advices, most likely in cooperation with private service providers, using roadside beacons (G5) and telecommunication (4G, 5G).
