"Mobility for Life – Recipes for the mobility of the future" at the ITS World Congress 2018

© AustriaTech/Zinner

The future of mobility and transport and their influence on the quality of life are one of the central topics at this year's ITS World Congress.

 

This year's ITS World Congress 2018 in Copenhagen will take place under the motto "Quality of Life". The world's largest conference on intelligent transport systems will focus on how intelligent and integrated mobility and transport solutions can positively improve the quality of life. AustriaTech also devotes itself to this topic and participates in the discourse on site and is also represented as an exhibitor under the umbrella of ITS Austria.

 

Living conditions are constantly changing, especially in urban areas. Between increasing traffic volumes and the demand for environmentally friendly, efficient and safe mobility, all relevant actors must act as mediators today. The term "Mobility as a Service" summarizes a number of concepts that addresses this challenge. Its basic concept demands to combine public, private and shared transport in a way that the transport needs of people and goods can be met by multimodal, integrated and digital mobility solutions. In the "LinkingDanube" project coordinated by AustriaTech, for example, a concept was developed that enables cross-border travel planning by linking several travel information services. By eliminating inconvenience and providing opportunities for seamless planning of the entire journey, consumers can start their journey in the best and most comfortable way for them. Since MaaS solutions cover several different modes of transport, they could possibly reduce the number of vehicles on the roads and help to reduce congestion and pollution in cities.

 

Such approaches contribute to an improvement in the overall traffic situation, not only in passenger mobility. In freight transport and logistics, the networking of road, air, rail and water transport to form a seamless logistics chain is equally important. The ERTICO project AEOLIX, in which AustriaTech is also involved, is currently working on a cloud-based logistics ecosystem that will act as a platform for the transparent sharing of information and data between various actors in the supply and transport chain.

 

Freight efficiency and MaaS solutions are two of the central themes of this year's ITS World Congress, which will take place from 17 to 21 September 2018. If you want to actively participate in the discussions, you can register here. We look forward to welcoming you at our joint stand (C2-062).
