A key feature of this year’s ITS World Congress Montréal will be the Smart
Cities Pavilion - a dedicated area displaying some of the best examples of infrastructure solutions from around the world. In addition to the host city, participating cities include Columbus, Ohio; Singapore; Copenhagen, Denmark; and Christchurch, New Zealand.
These experiential exhibitions will allow delegates and other visitors to see the leadership and innovation taking place now as cities across the globe are using technology to create their vision of next generation integrated mobility solutions in urban settings.
“The ITS World Congress Smart Cities Pavilion is an opportunity to show how technology can advance the future of integrated mobility, and why it’s important now to begin the discussion about the changes that are taking place to make our growing cities more livable for everyone,” said John Barton, ITS World Congress Smart Cities Pavilion Chairman.
With the themes of Urban Mobility, Engaged Citizenry, Smart Security, Economic Cluster, and Smart Democracy, these demonstrations will illustrate how transformative transportation and integrated mobility solutions are the epicenter of Smart Cities’ critical infrastructure, which seeks to provide seamless connectivity, improved systems delivery and a better, more equitable quality of life for citizens. Smart Cities include innovations related to traffic management, roadways, rail, parking, bike share, transit, car share, traveler information, connected and autonomous vehicles, integrated mobility, artificial intelligence, dependencies on transportation, addressing equity issues, smart security, smart energy, smart buildings, smart healthcare, smart government, smart fleets, and more.
