The upcoming CeBIT event on 1 – 5 March 2011 in Hannover is the largest IT event in the world awaiting nearly 400000 people to see more and more ITS related themes in 17 halls. As a member of the ITS Nationals ITS Network Germany has been co-operating with Deutsche Messe AG in preparation to host this event for the past seven years. The growing role of IT and ITS in mobility will be highlighted by the participation of Alan Mulally CEO of Ford at the Global Conferences on CeBIT as well as the first open view of the new Ford Focus.

Hall 17 will present a special exhibition format of “Destination ITS” where participants can see not only Ford showing their approaches to C2C systems but also Alcatel-Lucent with their LTE-solutions Siemens with eMobility demonstrations or IBM and WABCO dealing with fleet management. There will be further a stand from the iCar Support project which is co-funded by the European Commission.



On 3 March HeERO – the Pan-European eCall Demonstration Project – and ITS Niedersachsen are organising a special workshop dedicated to eCall a project aimed at an interoperable and harmonised 112 based in-vehicle emergency call system throughout Europe. The full-day workshop will include presentations by Emilio Davila-Gonzalez (European Commission DG INFSO-ICT for Transport) and Monica Schettino (Senior Project Manager and Leader of the HeERO Project ERTICO) alongside with other key industry speakers.

All the exhibitions will be accompanied by the “CeBIT in Motion” forum where participants will have a chance to partake in the presentations and discussions organised by ITS Network Germany.
