Share this article: is excited to announce our attendance at the ITS World Congress 2022. The event taking place September 18th to 22nd, is a chance for world leaders, practitioners, policy makers, researchers and private industry to come together at the Los Angeles Convention Center to discuss the latest in intelligent transportation and current, cutting-edge products and technologies.

The theme of this global event is ‘Transformation by Transportation’, and it aims to unite the intelligent transportation systems industry to discover ways in which we can advance and transform mobility for the future. It presents a fantastic opportunity to connect with others to deepen our understanding and become more adaptive in an ever-increasing technology-driven world.

You can find the team on Stand 1247, part of the UK Pavilion, where we’ll be ready and waiting to discuss the power of connected work zone management and share more details on our newly announced work zone safety pilot with Florida Department of Transportation and our life-saving technology.

We’re privileged to be participating in two Special Interest Sessions that are set to provide delegates with valuable insights.

Our CCO, Simon Topp, will be participating in Panel SIS64: Connecting Work Zones to Connected Vehicles: Saving Lives and Building Efficiency in a CAV Future. Scott Belcher, President and CEO of SFB Consulting and ex-President and CEO of ITS America, will lead a conversation on the current state of play in work zones, new initiatives and the long terms goals for connecting agencies, third party organizations and vehicles with crucial data to keep workers and drivers safe.

Simon will be joined by Carol Kuester (Metropolitan Transportation Commission), Michele Mueller (Michigan DOT), and Ananth Prasad, President of the Florida Transportation Builders Association and ex-FDOT Secretary.

Later in the day, our CEO and Founder, James Harris, will be taking part in Panel SIS74: Europe’s Lessons Learned: How Europe’s Growing Pains Can Save U.S. Transportation Agencies Time and Money. Paul Hutton, the Technology Editor of Highways News, will moderate a discussion, allowing panelists to share their insights and experiences from overseas, good and bad, for the benefit of an American audience.

Topics will include planning for major events, standardization of technology and traffic management protocols, improving work zone safety and most importantly, mistakes made on the road to success.

James will be joined by Alfredo Escriba (Kapsch Trafficcom), Michael Gaertner (Yunex Traffic), Mayumi Mizuno (TomTom), and Anthony Ferguson (UK Department for Transport).
