Intelematics – TISA Associated Event

Wednesday 12 October 2016 – 2:00 to 3:30 pm, Melbourne Convention Centre – Room 105

Quality traffic information increases the safety of road users, as improves the efficiency of their travel. Providing appropriate traffic information to road users increasingly is seen as valuable to support the traffic management objectives of road authorities.

Quality improvement requires that the traffic environment needs to become more homogeneous in order to accommodate consistent provision of high quality traffic information, including a closer interaction of traffic management and road users. At current, transport infrastructure and traffic management is very heterogeneous across countries and regions in terms of quality and availability of systems and services such as .e.g. incident management, traffic information, road works, etc., content and data standards for Traffic Information and Traffic Management data and Plans, and iv) processes, e.g. governance and operations, and quality assurance.

In this associated event, public and private stakeholders from around the globe are brought together to discuss the needs and proper pathways for improving the quality of traffic information, with resultant needs for stakeholder harmonization and collaboration. In this event, quality improvement initiatives and successes are presented, and further harmonization needs discussed. The aims are to exchange best practices, and to foster increased collaboration and harmonization between the stakeholders in the traffic information value chain.

The event is targeted at public and private stakeholders operating in the traffic information value chain with in an interest in improving quality of traffic information and collaboration between actors in the traffic information value chain.
