Please note that the date for the Green Transport Workshop has been moved to 29 September.
Transport is a significant contributor to environmental stress and it is a high priority to make transport “greener” and more sustainable.
Advances in ITS technologies, new opportunities and a deeper understanding of ITS to apply it in more integrated ways across various applications has lead to innovative measures being deployed to utilise ITS solutions to make transport more sustainable.
ITS South Africa through the ITS Center of Excellence is hosting this Green Transport Workshop demonstrating how ITS enhance "Green Roads” with the aim of meeting economic, social and mobility needs and to improve the operational efficiencies in transportation systems. The benefits to the transport system include reduced fossil fuel and air emissions, improved mobility and human health and safety, reduced life-cycle cost and increased awareness for implementing continuous improvements.
Various key categories such as surveillance, traffic control, lane management, information dissemination, form part of a sustainable transport assessment. Each of these categories plays a different role between the ITS design engineer, government spheres and road users.
The workshop is scheduled for 29 September 2015 in Cape Town.
To support members in obtaining points in the Continuous Professional Development process, the workshop will be registered for CPD points.
