Register now for ITS in the Perfect Storm

It may well be said that ITS finds itself in the eye of a "perfect storm" – there are escalating demands for solutions for strategic challenges, to mitigate congestion and to improve and expand mobility services. On the other hand, budgets are constrained and operators are pressurised to cut back on capital investment and reduce operating costs!

ITS South Africa is hosting a workshop on "ITS in the Perfect Storm — Driving Down Cost and Maximise Benefits." The workshop on Thursday 19 May 2016 in Pretoria will explore the ITS model on how to achieve operational efficiencies and deliver mobility services while driving down costs.

Topic: ITS in the Perfect Storm: Using ITS to Drive Down Cost and Maximise Benefits
Date: Thursday 19 May 2016
Time: 08:00 - 16:00
Venue: Pretoria

Big Data as Enabler for ITS

Transport has become data-driven and it introduces multiple issues for which we have to develop answers — sooner rather than later. Issues range from a policy to an operational level: What are the policy vacuums, how will we deal with concerns about protecting privacy and cyber security, where and how will data be warehoused, what will the institutional arrangements be and how do we share access to data? These are some of the questions that we need to explore, and urgently.

ITS South Africa is hosting a workshop and Big Data applications on 26 October 2016 in Cape Town.

We cordially invite members and interested parties to:

  • Submit an abstract to present at the workshop;
  • Be the event sponsor.
