Demonstrations in Copenhagen

This year’s Demonstrations will push the boundaries of modern mobility, so be sure not to miss the innovative services that will be showcased in our Demonstration area! Delegates and visitors get the chance to experience exciting current and future mobility options and learn about pioneering ventures. Feel free to come and visit the Demonstration Desk at the Bella Congress Centre for more information.

Here are a few highlights that you can look forward to:

Living Lab Bus – Innovations and Electricity

The demonstration showcases how urban electric buses and quick charging systems improve user and city experience through smoother and quieter rides with zero local emissions, while also reducing the total costs of operation. In addition, the demonstration shows how innovative buses are used as a mobile test platform for new technologies, data collection and service development and demonstration in the Living Lab Bus R&D project ( Using buses in normal operation as an open platform enables faster testing and demonstration of solutions that improve the attractiveness and efficiency of public transportation in real context with the chance to collect quick feedback from real users. This will be demonstrated with example cases related to road condition monitoring and forecasts, optimizing driving behavior and technologies for automated driving as well as service provision and feedback channels for the passengers.

Demonstration by Autonomous Mobility, BestMile, Ibeo Automotive Systems and Paravan

Autonomous Mobility, BestMile, Ibeo Automotive Systems and Paravan are joining forces to create an ecosystem that has everything needed to operate a fleet of autonomous vehicles.

On arrival at the Bella Center metro station, get on board one of our many autonomous shuttles, which will take you directly to the entrance of the ITS World Congress Exhibition Center. Experience how the driverless shuttles can be integrated into the Urban Jungle and complement traditional public transport services.

The parking lot in front of Bella Center will also turn into an “Urban Jungle”. Several autonomous shuttles will travel with you through the wild, making their way through static and dynamic obstacles. The demo participants will be able to order a vehicle in real time and experience a true on-demand autonomous shuttle service in the Urban Jungle.”


Copenhagen is known as one of the most biking friendly cities in the world. Q-Free wants to take the positive biking experience one step further and invite visitors to become urban Cooperative Intelligent Transport System cyclists. By the help of innovative technology, the live demonstrations allow participants to experience a range of practical Urban ITS scenarios. Visitors will use electrical bikes and will be guided through a city environment by the help of audio and visual information through screens mounted on the bikes and Bluetooth earphones. The screens and earphones give interactive information on the traffic situations. Several simulated situations will show how safety and efficiency can work in an urban ITS mobility setting. There a choice of doing the short route (100 meters) or the long route (2 km). Visitors will score points depending on their traffic behavior. A price will be awarded each day to a urban cyclist. Ear piece and helmets are provided free of charge. Doing the bicycle tour is a great way to energize your day at the ITS World Congress.

NordicWay 2 

Are you curious about how public authorities can use C-ITS for Traffic Management? Participate in the NordicWay 2 demonstration right outside Bella centre where you can take a ride with a Volvo XC90. We will show how a car – without driver intervention – can react to traffic management decisions provided by “the sky” from the Nordic road authorities.

The car will react automatically to traffic signal information by stopping the engine when appropriate and starting it again when you have green light. In dedicated geofence zones we can force a hybrid car to drive by electricity. We regard this demonstration as a starting point for connected and automated driving.

Sign up for the NordicWay 2 –Traffic Management by C-ITS – demonstration in the ITS WC 2018 app or at our stand C3-020, Nordic Pavilion.

The demonstration will be open at Tuesday and Wednesday from 10 to 14. The ride will take approximately five minutes. Additional information about the concepts and NordicWay 2 will be given at stand C3-020, Nordic Pavilion, within the exhibition area.


Discover the first autonomous cab on the market at ITS 2018

By presenting Navya Autonom Cab, Keolis reinforces its role as a pioneer in all forms of everyday shared transport by promoting its vision of more connected, autonomous, shared and electric mobility solutions. In the future, autonomous shared vehicles will smoothly integrate the existing multimodal transport networks and enhance mass transit modes (automated metro, tram…), which are critical to building sustainable and efficient mobility in the cities of tomorrow.

The autonomous cab, a complementary solution to mass transit modes.

Autonomous Valet Parking  – Making your car park ready for the driverless car of tomorrow, today

Today each OEM has their own way of managing autonomous cars in parking environments. This is fine for small scale pilots and trials, but drivers of the future will want to access services that work in car parks that are close to where they want to be not where the OEM directs them to.

Tomorrow car parks need to connect with driverless cars using an open interface protocol supported by access control, bay allocation, way finding and incident detection layers. The Swarco/Audi demonstration will show such a service working.

C-MobILE C-ITS interoperability deployment

The C-MobILE demonstration will showcase interoperability between services deployed in eight European cities. The innovative architecture of C-MobILE will allow end users to receive data seamlessly via short-range radio (ITS-G5) and cellular (3G/4G) communication in a standardized way. The city of Copenhagen and its service providers will deploy the C-MobILE hybrid architecture, bundling a coherent set of C-ITS services within an integrated suite of applications. To demonstrate interoperability, service providers from other cities will come to Copenhagen and use vehicles equipped with radio and cellular connectivity to demonstrate that their apps work natively in another city. Interoperability will be proven both on radio and cellular connectivity and for services like GLOSA for vehicles and for bicycles, Road Works Warning (tbc), Road Hazard Warning (tbc) and Green Light Priority (tbc).

MinRejseplan –  A Huge Step Towards a Mobility as a Service-App / MaaS App 

MinRejseplan app (MyJourneyPlanner), includes all sorts of transport and mobility modes such as trains, buses, the metro, carpooling, harbor-ferries, taxis, car-sharing, bicycle-sharing, and city bikes.

It is the future nationwide mobility app in Denmark the delegates and the citizens of Copenhagen will be able to try.

During the ITS World Congress, delegates will get access to a digital ticket solution, which will be included in MinRejseplan, which is valid for public transport in the city of Copenhagen.
