We look ahead to Monday at the ITS World Congress on today’s Highways Voices from Los Angeles.

In the podcast we hear Professor Eric Sampson’s comments on the main topics being discussed in the sessions, including an international forum on sustainability and resiliency, with mobility network management, moving transit to zero emissions. And a number of special interest sessions that have caught his eye.

All our podcasts for the World Congress are thanks to the generous support of our sponsors GEWISWARCONota AIone.network and Navtech Radar, all of whom you can meet in LA.

Danny Woolard from GEWI discusses a new software solution that seamlessly co-ordinates workzones, from permit through conflict awareness to traveller information, and we chat European issues with ERTICO CEO Joost Vantomme.

We meet three exhibitors on the UK Pavilion and UK visitor Alastair King of Clearview Intelligence gives a first impression of the event. We also look at things to do here in LA that aren’t ITS with our local expert, British ex pat Alan Clelland of ITS consultancy DKS Associates with great places to eat here in the city.

This podcast is published a day early as the beginning of the event coincides with the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II… Many UK, Canadian and Australian visitors will be gathering in the early hours of Monday morning in LA to watch the funeral, and the UK pavilion won’t be opening until the afternoon.
