With only days to go to the opening of the 25th ITS World Congress in Copenhagen, SMART Highways editor Paul Hutton looks ahead to some of the main talking points of the event to get you in the mood for one of the must-attend events of the year.

These podcasts are sponsored by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, SWARCO, Jenoptik and SNC-Lavalin business Atkins.

In today’s programme he talks about implementing ITS in the here and now with Michigan Governor Rick Snyder who also talks about the societal impact of the change in the way we move around, affecting the sort of jobs people may do in the future.

Green mobility is one of the key topics of conversation in Copenhagen so Dave Williams of Atkins talks about how ITS can help make our air cleaner and healthier and what he’s doing to make it happen.

We also hear from SWARCO about their emobility and parking solution and also how they are delivering their company’s mission to improve quality of life by making the travel experience safer, quicker, more convenient and environmentally sound while Jenoptik talk about they way they are using their technology to deliver a wide range of benefits to society far beyond enforcement.

And if this is the first time you’ve heard one of our podcasts we give you a quick guide to what to expect from the programmes from Copenhagen next week.

Enjoy the podcast!
