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.
This two-day Forum is designed to bring together representatives and experts from the research community, government, and industry to discuss and identify research needs and direction on the impact of vehicle technologies and automation for drivers and other transportation users.
Our own Professor John Lee is a panelist for the session about user experience on Tuesday afternoon. We hope to see you there.
