Smart mobility, autonomous driving and Mobility as a Service will be the order of the day at Intertraffic China 2018.
The world’s largest traffic and mobility technology show, Intertraffic China, is preparing to open its doors to the public once more. For three days, from May 28-30, the New China International Exhibition Center in Beijing will be the focal point for the traffic industry’s movers and shakers.
Smart mobility will be a dominant theme of the show, with Eindhoven University of Technology’s director for the smart mobility strategic area, Dr Carlo JT van de Weijer, kicking off proceedings as keynote speaker.
Further insights are expected from the bilingual smart mobility conference organized in cooperation with ITS China for this year’s event.
Mobility as a Service and autonomous driving will be supporting themes on the Intertraffic China agenda, while more than 350 exhibitors will be showcasing leading solutions for the traffic industry, addressing issues around road safety, parking and traffic management.
Richard Butter, director of traffic technology at RAI Amsterdam, is responsible for management of all Intertraffic events around the world. “The plans for China are coming together nicely,” he says. “In my opinion, a lot of new technologies are coming out of China in the field of traffic and smart mobilities, so we’re really looking forward to it.”
