TISA discusses Cycling and Emergency Alerts & Warnings at December Committee Meeting
On 7 December 2021, TISA Members gathered virtually for the last Committee Meeting of the year. Following some opening remarks by TISA Executive Director Matthias Unbehaun, the report from the Executive Office, the different working groups, and task forces were discussed and finally, TISA Members were addressed by Cycling Industries Europe CEO Kevin Mayne, GEWI CEO Hagen Geppert, Haas Alert Senior Vice President Jeremy Agulnek, and Teatownlake Principal Teun Hendriks.
TISA Committee Meeting was once again carried out online this month, with all members looking forward to having on-site meetings in Brussels again. Important current matters were discussed during the presentations from Content & Service Provision Committee, Technical & Standardisation Committee, and Products Committee. Presentations from four Keynote Speakers both internal and external to TISA were followed with a big interest. Cycling Industries Europe CEO Kevin Mayne talked about cycling and ITS, how the ubiquity of bicycles can be exploited, what smart connected cycling solutions along with automated mobility can further be explored from a cycling focused perspective. The second Keynote Speaker was GEWI CEO Hagen Geppert and he presented GEWI: TIC for Cycling, latest update on GEWI’s software to support greener means of transport such as cycling. As the third Keynote Speaker, Teatownlake’s Teun Hendriks talked about the latest developments and next steps for TPEG-EAW. The last presentation was by Haas Alert Senior Vice President Jeremy Agulnek who talked about Haas Alert’s Safety Cloud and how it can be used for the safety and protection of all road users.
