On Thursday 17 October, TISA President Thomas Kusche will moderate the Executive session “Progressing safety for all users through ITS” (ES08). The session will focus on the safety contribution of ITS for all users (including drivers, cyclists and pedestrians) and discuss how to ensure that road safety is a primary objective of utilising new transport technology.
TISA will welcome visitors at the European Pavilion (stand 122) every day to tell more about its activities and membership.
