Press release

10/16/2019

Smart cities of the future need innovative systems that address multimodal network analysis and evolving needs of end users, while enhancing agency collaboration. From October 21 to 25, Kapsch experts are presenting and discussing their most recent and innovative mobility solutions at Booth #359.

Vienna/Singapore, October 16, 2019 - Recent trends in urbanization, congestion and mode shifting present significant challenges in transport terms. Cities have to become smarter about how they move people and goods and need to find solutions which offer an improved user experience. Today, technologies that enable cities to do this are available. Smart devices are now commonplace and put information at citizens' fingertips - from the individual's perspective, these solutions are seamless and simple to use. However, enabling service providers to quantify and satisfy travellers' ambitions requires sophisticated supporting technology.

Delivering innovation to transform today's challenges into opportunities

Crucial for its success is to partner with a service provider having expertise, maturity, and a broad scope of offerings in terms of highway and urban mobility management capabilities, tolling, V2X, MaaS, and a multi-modal back office. Therefore, Kapsch will be showcasing their full portfolio of the latest integrated mobility solutions in realistic scenarios and sharing their vision for the future of urban mobility, which is focused on delivering innovation through smart solutions and agency cooperation whilst balancing demand across all modes.

Developing Smart Cities requires Smart Partnerships

As part of Kapsch's focus in unlocking the full potential of their integrated mobility solutions, Kapsch TrafficCom Australia has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the University of Melbourne to create a 'Mobility Hub' within the Australian Integrated Multimodal EcoSystem (AIMES) environment - a world-first living laboratory based on the streets of Melbourne, established to test highly integrated transport technology with a goal to deliver safer, cleaner, and more sustainable urban transport outcomes. The details of the project will be announced for the first time at the ITS World Congress.
