The US state of Michigan is keen to contact potential partners at the ITS World Congress, says the state’s lieutenant governor Brian Calley (pictured).

“ITS is in our DNA, in our blood,” he explained as he toured the stands at the Bella Center. “Anytime you have these gatherings, Michigan needs to be there, to be part of it. We want to be very connected, understanding how to build bridges across continents.”

Through its PlanetM initiative, Michigan has put itself at the forefront of practical ITS deployments in the US. As well as being “good business” there is a wider responsibility. “These technologies reduce pollution, congestion, accidents and fatalities,” Calley continues.

ITS has the potential to increase the productivity of businesses and cities through allowing efficient movement of people and goods – and can increase access to mobility services for people, he adds.Coming to Copenhagen also offers the chance to network. “It is about meeting different players,” he says. “This is still very much a relationship business.”
