Counting Down to Congress with SWARCO and GEWI – talking software, hardware and rail on Highways Voices

Highways Voices is the official podcast of the 2021 ITS World Congress from Hamburg and in this preview podcast sponsored by GEWI and SWARCO we hear from two exhibitors and the organisers.

Richard Neumann of SWARCO tells us all about the range of exciting new software and hardware solutions on his huge 124 square metre stand including SWARCO MyCity which is “a modular software suite, where you have different modules about the monitoring of traffic, about the traffic management system itself, about air quality measurements, about the parking guidance, and about the sign management for such signs”.

Rail is an important part of Congress with Deutsche Bahn making its debut with a range of end-to-end transport solutions and a plan to make rail travel more attractive than the car. Head of Smart Cities Dr Meike Niedbal who thinks the “21st century will be the century of railroad. Why? Because electrified rail transport is a key solution for sustainability and to fight climate change. This is why we digitise our train system in order to increase capacity and to make it more reliable.”

Conference Director Lisa Boch-Andersen is also on the programme discussing the delivery of the congress in difficult circumstances, there’s a summary of the latest news and you’ll hear why a pioneer of road building wins this week’s Adrian’s Accolade”. Listen here.

The ITS World Congress in Hamburg is in the week beginning 11 October. Details are here.
