Smart Transport for Australia Report
Produced by ITS Australia and prepared by Fivenines Consulting, Smart Transport for Australia is a comprehensive, high level Report leveraging off the 23rd ITS World Congress, Melbourne, 2016.
The Report captures key Congress messages, with a focus on Australian considerations, identifying industry initiatives, opportunities and benefits.
Launched on 1 March 2017 in Brisbane, Smart Transport for Australia sets out a summary of the key Congress themes. The Report will enable governments, industry, researchers and start-ups to consider a pathway forward to promote the development and adoption of smart transport technology solutions to improve safety, mobility and sustainability.
Post Congress Report
The ITS World Congress is the premier event in the international intelligent transport systems calendar. ITS Australia has had the privilege of hosting this prestigious event twice – Sydney 2001 and Melbourne 2016.
Both were hugely successful events. They provided a platform to promote the industry and were an opportunity for the local industry to connect internationally. In addition, the Congresses also promoted Australia as a destination of choice.
The Post Congress Report captures the key messages and moments of Melbourne 2016. Compiled by a dedicated on-site team of rapporteurs, attending over 220 sessions including more than 650 speakers and 450 presented papers, the Report accurately captures and reflects on this significant event.
The Post Congress Report is a documented record of the 23rd ITS World Congress and reference point for the industry.
High Level Policy Roundtable Report
Produced by the Australian Federal Government, the High Level Policy Roundtable Report is a record of the presentations delivered at this important meeting.
The High Level Policy Roundtable was held prior to the official opening of the ITS World Congress. The invitation only event was attended by international transport Ministers, Mayors and senior ITS representatives.
The Hon Darren Chester MP, Australian Government Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, and Brian Negus, President of ITS Australia hosted the Roundtable, which welcomed 100 participants, representing 22 Countries.
Delegates at the Roundtable shared the top three ITS challenges within their country and outlined current and/or emerging ITS initiatives. These were followed by overviews from the ITS Regions; ITS Asia Pacific, ITS Europe-ERTICO and ITS America.
ITS Australia advocates the application of communication, data processing and electronic technologies for in-vehicle, vehicle-to-vehicle, vehicle-to-infrastructure and mode-to-mode systems to increase transport safety and sustainability, reduce congestion, and improve the performance and competitiveness of Australia’s networks.
The Strategic Plan is a high level document, describing the purpose of the Association and broad activities that it intends to undertake: placing individual initiatives in context and setting out the ways in which the goals will be achieved.
