World Congress on Intelligent Transport Systems

Overview of the ITS World Congress

It is an international conference that provides a forum where people concerned with ITS (in business, government and academia) from the world over can gather to discuss, on an international level, solutions to traffic problems, development and expansion of business opportunities, R&D and practical deployment, and to present the results of their respective activities.
It is comprised of display exhibits, demonstrations, sessions and technical tours. The ITS organization is administered in three areas: Europe (by ERTICO), the Asia/Pacific region (ITS Japan) and North America (ITS America), and each year the Congress is held in one region by turn.

Each of the three areas in turn, holds the Congress to promote the practical application of ITS technologies on an international level.
