The programme for the popular JCT Traffic Signals Symposium taking place in Nottingham this September is full of a range of high-level speakers from the public and private sectors.
Taking place on Wednesday 14 and Thursday 15 September, the event kicks off with a keynote speech from Darren Capes of the Department for Transport talking about connected vehicle use in 2022. He’ll be joined by Jack Durdle of Yunex talking about V2X communications.
There will be papers on the environmental credentials of signals, decarbonising networks using active travel and the live labs project, as well as explanations on AI incident detection, smart radar, adaptive signal control, GLOSA and using GPS data to understand signal performance.
Other subjects include signal and junction design, prioritising active travel and the “second coming” of UTMC.
The event also includes a record number of exhibitors and the traditional barbecue and Yunex gala dinner.
Highways Voices will be presenting a podcast from the event, and Highways News co-owner Paul Hutton will be chairing one of the sessions with speakers from Transport for London and Transport for Greater Manchester.
The event is at the Nottingham Conference Centre, Nottingham Trent University, on 14 and 15 September with the MOVA User Group and welcome barbecue the day before.
