The CIVITAS Thematic Group on Transport Telematics invites you to participate in:

Webinar on Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) and Traffic Management

30th April 2015, 10:30-11:30 CET

In dealing with traffic and transport cities across Europe have to find a balance between throughput, livability, safety and sustainability. Different modes of transport use the same infrastructure and most cities do not have the capacity to enlarge the network. Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) and traffic management can help deal with managing traffic and transport in cities. Developments in this domain – with regard to big data, in-car technology, mobile applications but also Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning (SUMP) – have developed rapidly recently. This leads to questions for policy makers, practitioners and traffic managers, such as: how can traffic management and ITS contribute to my policy ambitions? What do technological developments mean for systems in place in my city? How can I benefit from innovations in this field?

At the moment a policy note is being prepared within CIVITAS that aims to facilitate European municipalities in their selection of sustainable, environmental friendly and cost-efficient ITS and traffic management measures to keep in line with European, national and urban goals and to fulfill the specific requirements of the city. In the webinar this policy note will be presented.

The city of Malaga will present one of their ITS measures: intelligent traffic control and software development for the Management Centre of Mobility (MOVIMA). This measure aims to improve traffic flow by means of implementing advanced traffic control tools focused on reducing stop-and-go traffic, reducing and/or adapting speed, and maximizing the reduction of emissions through traffic control. More information about the measure can be found here: http://civitas.eu/content/intelligent-traffic-control-and-software-development-malaga-mobility-management-centre

The webinar is organised as an open and participatory event where registered participants can ask questions in advance or during the webinar (by “raising you hand” or via the chat room).

Speakers at the webinar are:

  • Eline Jonkers & Teije Gorris (TNO) on the policy note

  • Francisco Bravo (MOVIMA) on the Malaga measure
