ERTICO hosted the European Pavilion at the 24th ITS World Congress last week in Montreal. The European Pavilion, which is organised at every ITS World Congress held overseas, represents the opportunity for European companies and organisations to showcase their latest technology and projects.
This year, ERTICO, co-organiser of the Congresses together with ITS America and ITS Asia-Pacific, presented its new vision to bring smart mobility to the next level through its four activity areas: Connected and Automated Driving, Urban Mobility, Clean Mobility and Transport and Logistics. These four areas represent the basis on which build the future of mobility for the befit of people and businesses.
Three of ERTICO’s activities were presented at the stand: Inlane, Cloud LSVA, and CARTRE. These three projects, co-funded by the European Commission with large consortia of transport leaders, are focusing on the deployment of automation by looking at lane-level navigation (inLane), video annotation (Cloud LSVA), and connected and automated driving (CARTRE).
Overall ERTICO organised and participated also in 22 sessions including the Executive Session on Mobility as a Service, moderated by ERTICO’s CEO Jacob Bangsgaard. Some of the most covered topics included connected and automated vehicles and freight and logistics. International cooperation and deployment were also an important aspect of the Congress programme and had/saw the participation of the European Commission.
The European Commission shared the stand with ERTICO at the European Pavilion, together with ERTICO’s Partners Dynniq, Topos Aquitaine, Eurometropole of Strasbourg, and other organisations (ENGIE, Cityway, Freshmile, Pôle Véhicule du Futur cluster, and Knot).
