Joyce de Winter, Exhibition Manager of Intertraffic Amsterdam is excited: ‘The traditional sectors are smartly and quickly reinventing themselves and therewith reclaiming their part with impact. Moreover, the industry dynamics of the mobility ecosystem are changing rapidly. With new opportunities come new players and we are very proud and excited to see ‘next level’ providers join our community. Intertraffic takes a key role as matchmaker as well as significant knowledge and best practice multiplier. It gives us great satisfaction to contribute to the mobility transition by enabling visitors to take home so many new insights.’
Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management and Rijkswaterstaat – Official hosts of Smart Mobility Programme and ITSUP
Following the 2018 edition, the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management and Rijkswaterstaat are once again joining forces in 2020 to take part in Intertraffic. They will both be located in Hall 8 (the Smart Mobility Hall), exhibiting along with other public and private parties from the Netherlands under the joint label Smart Mobility, Dutch Reality. They will also be hosting the Smart Mobility Summit programme, which features a large number of informative sessions on current developments in the field, paying particular attention to the great mobility opportunities offered by digitisation and data. The Ministry and Rijkswaterstaat’s hosting of this programme and of ITSUP emphasises the importance they accord to innovation, national and international cooperation, standardisation, and upscaling. The focus is on tackling mobility issues in relation to today’s urban problems: increasing urbanisation and pressure on available space, safety, climate change and sustainability. In other words, ‘safe, smart and sustainable mobility’ as the key theme.
Intertraffic Summit, knowledge & best practices
Intertraffic’s free to attend knowledge & best practice programme has been significantly expanded. This year’s edition will feature no less than three Summit theatres, an open stage for demonstrations, a network area to meet up with speakers and an indoor demonstration area with direct access to the parking deck for driving demos. There will be a variety of formats such as pitches, presentations, workshops and debates on solutions for the ever-growing accessibility, safety and climate problems.
Rethink the system and mitigate negative mobility effects together
The traffic technology and automotive industry are undergoing significant technological transformations with cooperation and data sharing becoming key aspects. The Summit Programme will offer participants the necessary tools to facilitate the mobility transition they are in. Attendees can gather information on mobility innovations and the latest product developments, find solutions to mobility challenges, seek business opportunities or potential partners, get expert advice and debate with other stakeholders.
Highlights of the Summit Programme
A mix of public and private organisations will sketch a balanced picture of challenges and opportunities, offering learnings to anyone involved in the mobility scene. Pioneers and innovators will share knowledge and discuss the mobility of the future. Authorities will show the progress and lessons learned regarding governance, social, economic and environmental goals and the many mobility challenges they are facing. Technology suppliers, service providers and solution vendors will present and demonstrate their solutions to the mobility industry and end-users.
Theatre and demo topics will be new parking services, speed enforcement technology, the impact of climate change on the transport infrastructure, C-ITS deployment and how to realise smart roads and digital infrastructure. Further highlighted themes in the Summit are data sharing, using data to fight congestion, creating new traffic insights, and optimising traffic by cloud technology and roadway analytics. Also presentations will run on integral mobility solutions and creating mobility ecosystems, examples of Mobility as a Service put into practice, multimodal hubs, environmental oriented traffic management, all with the aim of providing an alternative to the use of the private car and to help to reduce congestion and constraints in transport capacity. Moreover, workshops will be staged on new mobility services and creating liveable cities, impact on self-driving vehicles on traffic management, creating next steps in Cooperative Automated Driving and various new developments in road safety and road construction.
In the Demo Arena visitors can join pitches and demonstrations on next generation automatic incident detection, Variable Message Signs, innovative safety barriers and guardrails and environmentally-friendly intersection controls.
