Innovation and Intelligent Transport Systems play a significant role in determining our transport compositions for the future. The theme at the ITS World Congress is: ‘Towards Intelligent Mobility – Better use of space’. The theme focuses on the importance of using existing transport infrastructure more intelligently.
Transport is one of the initial programmes identified by the Satellite Applications Catapult. Our primary focus is to unlock the UK’s potential to provide satellite applications and services that deliver ground-breaking solutions to transport issues.
The Catapult have been working with the Emergency Services community in the UK to shape the vehicular communication architecture. The work is motivated by the need to support communication requirements (for voice and data) – now and in the future. We believe satellite communication has a key role to play as part of a robust and always available vehicular communication fabric.
At this year’s congress the Catapult will have a vehicle demonstration showing continuity of service for voice, video and data services over satellite and terrestrial communications technologies.
You can register to attend the demo here: http://itsworldcongress.com/demonstration-showcase
Catapult experts will also be chairing and moderating special interest and technical sessions (including Satellite Communications, Seamless Connectivity, Positioning and Broadcast and Infotainment) and will be available in the exhibition hall on Stand D21.
