Workshop 1: Unleashing Roadway Analytics

Presented by the IRF Committee on ITS
Introduced & Chaired by Dr. Bill Sowell, Chairman, IRF Committee on ITS
Speakers: Nassime Azadeh (Immergis), Sonal Ahuja (PTV Group), Kai Feldkamp (Rijkswaterstaat)
Wednesday, March 21, 10:30-12:00
Intertraffic On Stage, Hall 7

The significant task public agencies face in tackling the problem of delivering services to road users cannot be underestimated. Roadway analytics are powerful new tools that enable road operator and city managers to carry out on-demand traffic analysis to identify congestion bottlenecks, traffic safety risks, and visualize the results of infrastructure improvement projects. Join this workshop to understand how “big data” can help you extract actionable insights from a range of data sets, whether you want to understand historic traffic trends or benchmark roadway performance in support of targeted investment strategies.

Workshop 2: Smart City Mobility Applications

Presented by the IRF Committee on ITS
Introduced & Chaired by John Funny, Chairman, IRF Subcommittee on ITS Education
Speakers: Richard Harris (HMI) and David Montgomery (Siemens Mobility)
Wednesday, March 21, 14:00-15:30
Intertraffic On Stage, Hall 7

This session will present the current state of the art in establishing mobility plans and the associated ITS deployment scenarios based on emerging smart city paradigms. The session will review advances in intelligent transportation systems with specific focus on integrated mobility solutions. Case-studies and examples of implementations in urban environments will be presented.

Workshop 3: Diagnosing Road User Risk with Safety Audits

Presented by the IRF Committee on Road Safety
Presented & Chaired by Mike Dreznes, IRF Executive Vice President
Thursday, March 22, 10:30-12:00
Intertraffic On Stage, Hall 7

Road safety audits are effective and efficient tools to help road authorities reduce the number of accidents and casualties, because design standards alone cannot guarantee road safety in all conditions. IRF strongly supports the extended and expanded use of road safety audits and inspections at all stages of road design and operations. Drawing from international experience, this workshop will place particular emphasis on successful practices that have contributed to reducing injury risk for all road users.

Workshop 4: Safety Benefits of Conspicuous Roads

Presented by the IRF Committee on Road Safety
Introduced & Chaired by Mike Dreznes, IRF Executive Vice President
Speakers: Darko Babic (University of Zagreb) and Sinan Yordem (3M), Danilo Fagnani (Snoline)
Thursday, March 22, 14:00-15:30
Intertraffic On Stage, Hall 7

A disproportionate share of serious and fatal road traffic crashes happen at night or in low-visibility conditions. The problem is increasingly compounded with an ageing motoring population and under-investments in the maintenance of roadside safety assets. Join key experts from academia and industry to understand what measures can be taken to make roads more self-explaining in all driving conditions, and how marking and signs are key factors in enable a shift towards partial and full vehicle automation.
