Webinar: Road Scanning Innovation: Now & Future

Road scanning tools have significantly improved in the last 20 years with the introduction of advanced technologies like Lasers, Lidars, Accelerometers, and Stereo-Vision. These instruments allowed to speed-up the measuring campaigns and to move from qualitative to quantitative evaluation. Nevertheless, the cost of road mapping is still high, limiting the updates to larger organizations and making these technologies inaccessible to small companies and municipalities. The latest development in the field of autonomous driving (AD) could bring a significant revolution in connection with the developments of vehicle to infrastructure communication (V2I). This webinar will introduce these concepts showing state-of-the-art sensors for AD and how this revolution is already making advanced mapping tools accessible to everyone.

Webinar: Cooperative ITS: Getting Ready to Deploy the Next Generation

This webinar is about how cooperative ITS is creating new opportunities to transport professionals to tackle mobility issues such as road safety, traffic congestion and energy efficiency. Thanks to wireless communication technologies, data exchange between components and actors of the road transport system, very often between vehicles (vehicle-to-vehicle or V2V) or between vehicles and infrastructure (vehicle-to-infrastructure or V2I), generate new sources of valuable and reliable information that can feed new generation of ITS services.

Webinar: Road Funding Policy: Time for New Revenue Collection Systems

This webinar will include an overview of the motivations for Road User Charging (RUC) in the age of declining revenue sources by explaining how RUC is both a major step toward direct user fees for motorists and an opportunity to examine the linkage to investment decision making, because road charging contains not only revenue data but also direct information about usage of the road network that does not exist in fuel taxation.
