From 29 October – 2 November 2017 the 24th ITS World Congress was hosted by the City of Montreal, Canada.
The Congress theme was “Next generation integrated mobility: driving smart cities”. This wording aimed to reflect the remarkable range of ITS products that are now being deployed by cities and urban conurbations to support population increases, sustained growth in demand for mobility, and
users’ appetites for services that build on 24/7 connectivity.
The Congress comprised of around 120 sessions where 540 papers were presented. Plenary sessions, High Level industry executives, public officials and international experts shared their perspectives and extensive experience on ITS Topics encompassing policy, strategic, economic, technical, organizational and societal aspects.
The exhibition displayed products and solutions from over 200 organizations on more than 150 000 square meters of floor space. There were also a number of technical tours to local control and service centres, as well as major construction sites and demonstrations.
Montreal saw the largest set of technology and service demonstrations at a congress to date, with over 20 separate displays.
