Europe’s leading intelligent transport systems (ITS) players have joined forces to deliver ground-breaking training and educational courses based on the mass Online Open Course model. Courses started on 17 April on the ITS e-learning online training platform.
Registration on the online training platform www.its-elearning.eu is open and free, with the first courses beginning on 17 April. Participants will have the chance to learn about ITS and cooperative ITS (C-ITS) services and experience these cutting-edge technologies first-hand, thanks to face-to-face training sessions with experts in the field. Online training will be supported by live demonstrations held across Europe.
Experienced ITS professionals, including ERTICO’s Pr. Eric Sampson, Dr. Simon Edwards from the University of Newcastle, AustriaTech’s Mobility Manager Katharina Zwick, and Monica Giannini, Senior Manager at the International Road Transport Union, will guide students and provide expert advice throughout the courses.
Dr Johanna Tzanidaki from ERTICO delivered a lecture on ‘TMC and roadside technologies for ITS‘ as part of the course on traffic management.
The online training programme consists of nine modules covering various aspects of ITS and caters to all levels. Course topics include Introduction to ITS, Impacts of ITS, Financial Incentives and Business Models, Data Protection and Guidance on deployment of C-ITS. Flexible course organisation lets participants engage with the material at their own pace, making it accessible to professionals in academia, public authorities, traffic management, industry, or infrastructure operators.
