Intelligent transport systems (ITS) leaders from American, Asia Pacific and Europe will join the Australian smart transport community to explore current and future technologies at the Australian Intelligent Transport Systems Summit, 27-28 September 2017, at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.
Hosted by ITS Australia in partnership with Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads, the key focus areas are connected and automated vehicles, mobility as a service, big data and transport for smart cities. The ITS Summit is Australia’s largest annual industry-led ITS conference.
The ITS Summit will include more than 40 Australian and international speakers, in addition to Keynotes, exhibitions, technical tours and networking opportunities.
ITS Australia chief executive Susan Harris said the Summit theme, Transforming Transport, reflects the rapidly changing transport landscape of today while introducing future mobility technologies.
“The Intelligent Transport Systems industry has never been stronger and increasingly plays a vital role in the safety, efficiency and sustainability of freight and people movements,” she said.
“Technology is changing so fast it not only presents opportunities to enhance the liveability of our cities and communities, it creates new and future business opportunities. Australia has the capability to capitalise on these.”
