From the World Congress organizers:
Thousands of people from the transport, automotive, telecommunications, and technology sectors will engage in robust discussions and spirited debates as to how this rapidly changing and ever-expanding industry is addressing the very real challenges facing our mobile, connected societies today and in the future.
The Smart Cities Pavilion highlights Smart Cities from around the world, continuing the discussion and debate around how policy can advance the future of integrated mobility, how transportation is moving to the center of the Internet of Things and how technological solutions and the IoT are changing cities.
Live demonstrations of ITS technologies are featured, and the City of Montréal is creating a virtual testbed on the streets adjacent to the Palais des congrès. This test bed will include an arterial loop circling the Palais and a section of a nearby limited access highway that will be equipped with DSRC roadside units integrated with local signal controllers to support demonstrations of Connected Vehicle technologies.
