With the JCT Traffic Signals Symposium’s physical event in Nottingham cancelled because of continuing restrictions around Covid-19, delegates can now sign up to take part online from the comfort of their home or office.
This year there are 20 papers from a range of experts across the public and private sector. They will cover a diverse range of topics from crowd-sourced data gathering, Artificial Intelligence and traffic control, and the environment, to equipment maintenance, bus priority systems, and safely prioritising cycling and walking.
A very high number of attendees are expected because participation is free this year. This is thanks to the support of a range of industry partners who are supporting JCT in delivering the symposium. They are: AGD, Aldridge Traffic Systems, C & T Technology, Clearview Intelligence, COLAS, Dynniq, Integrated Traffic Services, Institute of Highway Engineers, ITS (UK), NAL, NOW Wireless, PTV, Siemens Mobility, SWARCO Traffic, telent, TRL, TWM Traffic Control Systems and Vivacity Labs.
Highways News is the media partner of the event.
“I am very proud to officially open registration for this year’s Symposium,” said JCT Director John Nightingale who is organising the event. “A big question mark has hung over the Symposium since March – not about whether it would take place but how. I have always known that speakers and financial supporters would make it happen one way or another and I’m certain that this year’s event will have all the knowledge sharing, expertise and debate that we’ve always had – albeit without our usual free bar and goody bags.”
Registration is also open now for the MOVA User Group which will take place the week before, on 17 September.
The full programme details and timings are now being finalised and those who sign up as delegates will be issued full joining instructions in good time before the Symposium. Plans are already being put together for a special 25th anniversary event next year.
