The sun is just rising over the final day of the 25th ITS World Congress, and plenty of activity is planned before the official closing this afternoon. In the meantime here are some updates from yesterday!
Susan Harris has been immersed in the Congress this week. So far Susan has moderated a session on the anticipated changes in employment patterns brought about by emerging transport technology; attended a session on cyber-security; and moderated another session on vehicle detection and network efficiency.
As Susan said “It was very apparent that there will be a significant growth in employment opportunities in technology and data analytics. From the session on employment patterns, training was seen as key to ensure the industry has the skills to and resources needed to address anticipated impacted by automation. The presenters recommended building confidence in individuals so that they could adjust to a more technology-based role.
“The very valuable session I attended on cyber-security looked at where some of the vulnerabilities of CAVs exist, highlighting important work that needs to be done in this space. At the more technical end of the spectrum, I moderated a session on vehicle detection and network efficiency, showcasing: emerging research in pavement monitoring; vehicle type detection; use of dashcams for network monitoring; relationships to air quality and traffic flow; and application of economic theories to investigate efficient road use and network efficiency.”
As you can see there is something for everyone one at the ITS World Congress. Not only an incredible range of sessions but the opportunity to meet with, share and collaborate with ITS leaders around the globe.
It has been another highly successful ITS World Congress in the beautiful city of Copenhagen. If you weren’t able to attend, we encourage you to join the 2019 ITS World Congress in Singapore – 21-25 October
