2014 World Congress on Intelligent Transportation
Please join us in Detroit, Michigan from September 7-14 this year as the Intelligent Transportation Society of America (ITS America), in partnership with ERTICO and ITS Asia Pacific, hosts the 21st World Congress on Intelligent Transport Systems.
The World Congress is held in the Americas only once every three years, making this a rare opportunity to see and experience the latest ITS developments and technologies that are driving the future of transportation. More than 10,000 of the world’s leading transportation policymakers, researchers, high-tech innovators, and business professionals from North America, Europe and Asia will gather to network and share the most groundbreaking applications from around the globe.
Why Should You Attend?
This year’s theme “Reinventing Transportation in our Connected World,” will showcase some of the world’s most brilliant transportation systems and highlight the race to become more connected and integrated through technology. From Connected Vehicles and freight management to smart infrastructure and cutting edge ITS architecture – this event will have it all.
Taking place in the newly refurbished Cobo Center, the World Congress will offer 300,000 square feet of interactive technology showcases including for the first time ever, a working multi-modal Transportation Operations Center. There will be more than 250 technical and scientific sessions as well as countless networking and educational opportunities with ITS industry leaders from both the public and private sectors.
Few places in the world have the concentration of transportation companies, research institutions, and deployment agencies as Detroit, but the Motor City is about more than just cars. Detroit and its Canadian neighbor Windsor, Ontario represent an integrated hub for the highway, commercial vehicle and transit industries while sharing one of North America’s busiest and most ITS-reliant border crossings.
Despite varying geographies, funding levels, and specialties, many of the challenges transportation professionals face every day are common throughout the industry: congestion and traffic management, emergency response and evacuation, data collection, system performance, highway safety, tolling, freight corridor management, sustainability, and so much more. Join more than 10,000 of the very best transportation problem solvers from around the world to learn, network and bring back knowledge that will help directly benefit your organization.
