Towards a new transportation culture: technology innovations for safe, efficient and sustainable mobility

17 - 18 November 2014

Joint BELGIUM - UNECE Inland Transport Committee (ITC) workshop on Intelligent Transport Systems: "Towards a new transportation culture: technology innovations for safe, efficient and sustainable mobility"



The Federal Public Service Mobility and Transport of Belgium together with the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) is organizing a workshop on Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS), exploring the topic: “Towards a new transportation culture: technology innovations for safe, efficient and sustainable mobility”. The two-day workshop will take place at the Diamant Conference and Business Centre in Brussels, Belgium, on 17 and 18 November 2014.

This annual flagship workshop follows the UNECE Road Map for promoting ITS, which includes global actions ranging from harmonizing policies to improving road safety and ensuring data security. One of the key actions of the Road Map is to create opportunities for Governments and key stakeholders to exchange views and deepen cooperation on ITS issues. The workshop will bring together ITS experts to discuss how information and communications technology (ICT) based innovations can help create a driving and transportation culture that contributes to safe, efficient and sustainable mobility. Additionally, the workshop will explore how UNECE can reach a harmonized approach for the development and evaluation of cooperative systems and autonomous driving as well as discuss the role of UNECE in harmonizing the messages that are provided through variable message signs.
