Event at a Glance

On 22 to 26 October 2012 ERTICO – ITS EUROPE is organising, in close cooperation with its counterpart regional organisations and the Host organisation, the 19th World Congress on Intelligent Transport Systems and Services (ITS) in Vienna, Austria.

The ITS Congresses continue to be of increasing significance globally while gathering over 300 exhibitors and 8,000 visitors from more than 60 countries worldwide, in the quest to share best practices and build reliable networks.

Within the theme smarter on the way, the Vienna ITS World Congress is going to deal with innovative systems for the improvement of mobility.  The energy-efficient and environmentally friendly transport policy using intelligent systems and services has continually proved to be of great importance in Europe and worldwide. Austria is particularly calling for an exceedingly high degree of well-balanced freight and passenger mobility using multimodality. Needless to say the ideal place to host the 19th ITS World Congress – \\\\\\\”smarter on the way!\\\\\\\”

The venue for ITS Vienna 2012 is the Messe Wien which is located very close to downtown Vienna.  The main Demonstration Area is beside this Congress Centre where state of the art cooperative mobility services based on vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication will be demonstrated.
