User Expectations and ITS ConOps

You are cordially invited to a Members Meeting in Gauteng on 16 November 2016. It will center on research done by Prof Christo Venter of UP. The study forms part of the Johannesburg’s Integrated Public Transport Network strategy to guide the future deployment of its BRT system and its related services. The topic of the briefing is "What users want from public transport: Experiments in user preference and choice, and potential implications for ITS."

The study reports that such systems in South Africa generally have lower passenger demand, poorer financial performance and higher subsidy requirements than initially forecast. An important finding of the study is that potential passengers show a low willingness to pay for enhancements.

In the light of big cost-reduction pushes and a call for “ITS Light” it is worth our while to take note of the views of our (end) customers in developing and/or refining the ITS ConOps for the IRTPN systems in operation or under development.

The meeting will conclude with an on-site visit to the Ekurhuleni/Harambee TMC in Kempton Park. Secure parking is available.

The closing date for registration is 9 November.

Active Traffic Management Course

Continued traffic growth along congested freeway corridors combined with funding constraints for expansion and improvement projects are limiting implementing authorities’ ability to provide sufficient roadway capacity in major metropolitan areas. Focusing on trip reliability, active traffic management (ATM) maximizes the effectiveness and efficiency of the facility, and increases throughput and safety with the assistance of integrated technology systems.

The Stellenbosch University in association with ITS South Africa is offering a 2-day course (with 2 CPD points) on 23-24 November 2016.
