Siemens presents ‘Smart Systems, Smart Traffic’ concept at ITS European Congress


Siemens is presenting its own theme at this week’s (June 6-9) ITS European Congress in Glasgow: ‘Smart Systems, Smart Traffic: solutions and expertise at the heart of integrated mobility and connected infrastructure’, and tying in product demonstrations and presentations with this.

The company is showing a comprehensive range of sustainable traffic products and intelligent systems, including solutions for enforcement and tolling, as well as its work on a number of exciting deployments on projects worldwide.

New technologies and intelligent transportation systems on show will include Siemens Stratos, which has been designed to be the UK’s first cloud-hosted, fully integrated traffic control and management system. Stratos it at the heart of further demonstrations of the Siemens’ connected and autonomous vehicle (CAV) infrastructure systems expertise, including the recently announced UK CITE project, and sustainable traffic management solutions aimed at improving mobility for passengers and motorists.

At the event, Siemens product manager, Priscilla Boyd, will present, ‘Intelligent Parking – Where ITS and Smart Cities unite’ on Thursday, June 9. The paper explores the integration of intelligent parking bay sensing technologies with traffic management systems, the impact that parking has on traffic, and how traffic management can be used to mitigate those issues, including future integration with connected and autonomous vehicles. Now available, the intelligent parking system will be demonstrated on the Siemens stand.

Robert Sykora, director of innovative technologies at Siemens, will speak at a special interest session, ‘Bringing Services to Users’, today (June 7). The session looks at putting users at the heart of the transport network, offering tailor-made solutions based on preferences. As cities, transport operators, and mobility service providers, are challenged to shape the mobility landscape for the demand of the future in an attractive, sustainable, integrated and multimodal way, Sykora’s presentation will look at how new mobility services, which are focused on the individual’s usage, have evolved in the recent past, such as car sharing, bike sharing and ride sharing.

Siemens’ sales and marketing director, Matthew Vincent, said, “From journey planning to better traffic flow, parking and enforcement, our traffic solutions provide ‘end-to-end’ journey efficiency. Building on our traffic management expertise, we believe system intelligence and data is fundamental to integrated mobility, and we see the development of vehicle-to-infrastructure technologies as critical towards a safer world.”
