Winner of the Intertraffic Green Globe Award was Jenoptik for its Traffipole traffic cabinet, whose innovative design enables ITS hardware to function in hot climates without the need for air conditioning, thus reducing energy consumption and CO2 emissions.
Next was a life-saving solution from Australia: Acusensus Heads Up is an automatic detection system that addresses the growing safety problem of mobile phone use at the wheel. The jury gave it the Intertraffic Inspiration Award because it led the field, providing inspiration for enforcement solutions that have come since it was launched.
The final trophy was the Intertraffic User Experience Award, which goes to Toogethr Parking, which impressed the jury with its dynamic, demand-responsive interface that can also help to enable multimodal travel and ride-sharing.
Pieter Litjens, chairman of the Awards jury and MD of Dutch transport knowledge-sharing platform Crow, explained that a special mention went to road safety barrier system SCReWS from Italian firm Aisico. It’s designed to stop out-of-control vehicles, even where the installation surface is weak – a huge safety benefit.
