ITSWC16 Policy Round Table - Report available

The 23rd ITS World Congress, held in Melbourne last October, brought together the world’s transport leaders and policy makers to discuss the role of emerging technology in improving transport safety, effectiveness and sustainability. “Intelligent Transport Systems Enhancing Liveable Cities and Communities” was the theme of the 2016 congress.

The first key event of the congress was the Intelligent Transport Systems High Level Policy Roundtable (the Roundtable). This event preceded the official welcoming and opening ceremonies and was attended by International Transport Ministers, Mayors and other senior ITS experts.

The Hon Darren Chester MP, Australian Government Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, and Mr Brian Negus, President of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) Australia hosted the Roundtable, which welcomed 100 participants, representing 22 Countries.

Delegates at the Roundtable shared the top three ITS challenges within their countries and outlined current and or emerging ITS initiatives. These were followed by regional overviews from four ITS Regions – Asia-Pacific, Americas, Europe and Australia.
