As interest in intelligent transportation systems (ITS) continues to increase, ITS Australia has announced it will host an ITS Summit each year, with key topics in the industry discussed and explored at the annual event. The 2017 ITS Summit will take place in Brisbane (above), Queensland, on September 27-28.
ITS leaders from America, Asia-Pacific and Europe will join the Australian smart transportation community to explore current and future technologies at the summit, which is to be held at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre (BCEC).
Hosted by ITS Australia in partnership with Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads, the key focus areas are: connected and automated vehicles, Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS), big data, and smart cities. The ITS Summit is Australia’s largest annual industry-led ITS conference.
ITS Australia chief executive Susan Harris (right) said the summit theme Transforming Transport reflects the rapidly changing transport landscape of today while introducing future mobility technologies.
“The ITS industry has never been stronger and increasingly plays a vital role in the safety, efficiency and sustainability of freight and people movements,” said Harris.
“Technology is changing so fast it not only presents opportunities to enhance the liveability of our cities and communities, it creates new and future business opportunities. Australia has the capability to capitalize on these.”
The ITS Summit is an opportunity for the intelligent transport systems industry to come together, explore new technologies and discuss the benefits for users of transforming transport. The summit will include more than 40 Australian and international speakers, in addition to keynote sessions, exhibitions, technical tours and networking opportunities.
