Why did TISA decide to have a stand at Vienna?

Amaury Cornelis TISA Coordinator and Stéphanie Chaufton TISA Administrator: The European ITS Congress at Lyon in 2011 was the first time TISA had an independent stand at an ITS Congress and it was a great success for TISA and for our members. It was an easy decision to offer our membership the opportunity again this year and a vote of confidence in the ITS Congress that more of our members reacted so positively.

What is going on at the stand? What are the highlights?

There really is a lot going on at the TISA stand not to mention the various demonstrations elsewhere -iBiquity GEWI INRIX Continental and Fraunhofer–ask us for details!

We have a TISA/EasyWay demo on demand continuing our successful cooperation that began with last year’s MoU. This year just ask us about DATEX-TPEG interoperability!

TISA Member bmt – Bayerische Medien Techniek GmbH will present their TPEG know-who with playout and analysis tools. Furthermore the world’s first TPEG2-ADT based client will demonstrate TPEG2 technology in combination with public transport.

And last but not least a BMW series 1 convertible will show what TPEG Applications can offer to the drivers in terms of real-time traffic event information.

What are you personally looking forward to most at the Vienna Congress?

Stéphanie Chaufton: Meeting the TISA members face-to-face once again! Over the years we have developed a very productive relationship and it is always good to see everybody.  That’s also why I’m glad we are able to host TISA members on our stand – it’s just another way TISA is working for the benefit of its members. And finally… I’m very much looking forward to the BMW convertible demo!

Amaury Cornelis:  I’m looking forward to a very successful event for TISA! We’ve all put a lot of work into Vienna and I’m sure we will get even more out of it. Seeing TISA and EasyWay work together once again is also a pleasure… and I’m also looking forward to trying to waltz at the Gala dinner!
