3. Mobileye: Changing the urban mobility landscape

As city and transportation officials rethink mobility, tackle traffic congestion, advance sustainability, and build safer intersections for pedestrians and vehicles, accurate data collection has become a critical endeavor.

At ITS World Congress 2021, come and meet representatives from Mobileye, an Intel Company, and a global leader in the development of computer vision and machine learning, data analysis, localization, and mapping for advanced driver assistance systems and autonomous driving solutions, at Stand B5.200.

Mobileye aggregates road data from millions of vehicles equipped with our advanced computer vision technology as they travel their regular routes, which allows us capture the real-world traffic dynamics and the changing urban mobility landscape.

Mobileye Data Services can help local authorities and DOTs address mobility and transportation challenges by providing valuable data on driving behavior, pedestrian and cyclist volume, traffic flow with lane-level precision, and more – all delivered at a high refresh rate.

4. Sopra Steria: Towards fluid and eco-responsible mobility

Sopra Steria, a European leader in consulting, digital services and software development, will participate as General Partner at the ITS World Congress.

Come and discuss with it experts, who will present our approaches and IT solutions for a more open, more fluid and more eco-responsible mobility, at stand B5.003. And don’t miss Sopra Steria’s conference on Tuesday, October 12 at 3.30pm – How to take advantage of the power of your raw mobility data, during which three of its European experts will illustrate this subject with different use cases.


4. ZF Group: Experience next-generation mobility today

Mobility is changing faster than ever before. The strategic goal of ZF is to provide technology for ‘Next Generation Mobility’. Not tomorrow, but now.

The global technology company offers all the necessary technologies for the vehicle and mobility concepts of the future. The Group is also very active in the market for autonomous shuttle systems.

The ZF subsidiary 2getthere has many years of experience with autonomous driving systems. And currently, ZF is in the process of developing autonomous shuttles for the German cities of Friedrichshafen and Mannheim as part of the RABus project. The company is convinced that a network of autonomous, electric shuttles available via app can usefully supplement existing public transport services in cities, but also better connect rural areas of cities.

At the ITS World Congress in Hamburg, ZF will show what role the company will play in the future when it comes to autonomous shuttle systems.

Visit ZF on Stand B5110 and attend its public panel discussion with exciting guests on stage B5420, on the topic Mobility in transition – the public transport of the future. Now. (in German language) on October 12 at 11am.
