Representatives from Hamburg have travelled to Melbourne for this week’s ITS World Congress to highlight the German city’s bid to host the ITSWC in 2021.

During this year’s event, the Volkswagen Group confirmed its support for Hamburg’s application, which has been developed in conjunction with the German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructures.

Hamburg’s participation in the ROADS (roadwork administration and decision system) project, which enables the coordination of construction projects, is being used to showcase the city’s competence in ITS as is its contribution to Green4Transport.

This two-year project will use V2X communications between trucks, ships, traffic lights, bridges and level crossings to evaluate the technology’s potential to improve traffic flow and safety around the port area, while lowering emissions. Hamburg says hosting 2021’s ITS World Congress would allow it to enhance its transportation system using ITS, and to contribute to the development of sustainable urban mobility.
