The Intelligent Transport Systems industry is finally meeting together at its World Congress in Hamburg and we talk physical and software solutions, Mobility as a Service, commercialisation of test beds and even hint at a Beatles moment in the first of a series of Highways Voices podcast specials.

These podcasts are possible thanks to the sponsorship from SWARCO and GEWI.

Highways News co-owner Paul Hutton is in Germany for this week’s Congress and in Monday’s podcast he talks to the CEO of the event organisers, Jacob Bangsgaard of ERTICO – ITS Europe who discusses the work that went into making the event happen, and some of the highlights of the week.

Richard Neumann of SWARCO discusses software solutions, new technology and his company’s recent acquisition of Dynniq Mobility while we also hear from Deutsche Bahn about all-round mobility solutions and Transport for West Midlands who have been instrumental in delivering the UK stand this year alongside ITS (UK), the Department for Transport and Innovate UK.

We also hear from Prof Eric Sampson, who is keeping up with his record of attending every single ITS World Congress. He gives his views of the key things to see and do on Day One, and hints that we might get some Merseyside Music in the Opening Ceremony.
