Traffic volume continues to increase, new technologies such as autonomous vehicles, Car2X and further innovations in transport continue to develop and the interfaces between the urban and interurban areas become more important. Traffic Management Centres have to deal with these challenges by implementing innovative systems and software and a closer cooperation with neighbouring traffic centres, other modes, as well as between the urban and interurban area.
On 12/13 November 2019, traffic management experts from various European countries will gather in Bergisch Gladbach (Germany) to discuss these topics in the workshop “Future Challenges for Traffic Management Centres”.
The aim of this workshop is to present the challenges of traffic management centres, existing and planned innovative systems and software, as well as possible cooperation between traffic centres. The programme consists of 4 sessions with in total 15 presentations from nine different countries, covering the following topics:
- Automation in Traffic Management Centres
- Future technologies
- Urban Traffic Management & Cross-border co-operation
- Incident Warning & Management
- Co-operation in traffic management (public-private)
The full programme is available here.
The workshop is hosted by BASt and organised by the Next-ITS 3 and EU EIP projects, in cooperation with the ITS corridor projects Arc Atlantique 3, Crocodile, MedTIS and URSA MAJOR neo.
