South Africa, like many parts of the world, is experiencing continued urbanisation with resulting pressure on the infrastructure in cities. Urban performance currently depends not only on the city's endowment of physical infrastructure, but increasingly also on the availability and quality of knowledge communication and social infrastructure. It is against this background that the concept of the smart city has been introduced as a strategic device to encompass modern urban production factors in a common framework and to highlight the growing importance of Information and Communication Technologies ICT. The ITS industry has a key role to play in planning, developing and operating smart mobility solutions.
ITS South Africa plans a workshop on Smart Mobility Solutions for South African Cities. If you are interested in participating in such a workshop, either presenting a paper or demonstrating technical solutions, please reply to this expression of interest by sending an email to email@example.com
