The Transport Systems Catapult will be one of the main sponsors of the World Congress on Intelligent Transport Services in Bordeaux in October.
The ITS World Congress is the world’s largest event in intelligent transport systems and services. As a main sponsor of the event, the Transport Systems Catapult will showcase innovations in areas such as autonomous vehicles, rail travel and airspace management to drive investment and partnerships with UK businesses.
During these five days of the Congress, leading experts will discuss hot topics such as localised emergency call (e-Call), communication between vehicles and infrastructure, the future of connectivity (4G and 5G), driving assistance, highly automated driving vehicles and other topics aimed at greater safety, comfort, greater mobility and a better environment. The TSC will be showcasing the self-driving LUTZ Pathfinder pod project at the event, whilst Catapult experts will speak on connected mobility and its implications for transport users.
Steve Yianni, CEO of the Transport Systems Catapult commented:
“The ITS World Congress is an important international event for the Intelligent Mobility sector which is why it is vital that UK plc is represented in a significant way. It offers a major gateway for UK businesses looking to contribute and profit from this £900bn sector. We have a great deal of expertise in the UK in our academic and research facilities which could be key for the development of intelligent mobility solutions. It is vital that we leverage this knowledge to create new business opportunities for UK plc.”
At the ITS World Congress the technologies of tomorrow and the day after tomorrow will be presented “live”, to over 15,000 visitors from businesses around the world. It is our aim to ensure the UK is established as a major contributor in this exciting arena.”
