Welcome to ITS Deutschland
ITS Deutschland bundles nationwide interests in the field of transport and mobility in order to represent them internationally. Key topics are:
The facilitation of research and development of intelligent transport systems
The introduction and further development of intelligent transport systems leading to increasing traffic safety and to improve mobility and efficiency on managing the ever-growing traffic
In the end, the aim is to exhaust the potential of intelligent transport systems in order to facilitate the intermodal transport of persons and goods in an economical and environmentally sustainable way.
What does ITS mean?
Intelligent traffic systems or intelligent transport systems contain all applications that make traffic safer and more efficient through the usage of modern IT technology. These are e.g. driver assist systems, Car-to-car communication, information and payment systems on smartphones for public traffic.
Why are the technologies of ITS so important?
The usage of ITS technology changes the mobility in a lasting way and is indispensable in order to deal with the growing tasks of urban development, globalisation and demographic change. Especially the two mega-trends out of the individual traffic “new gears” and “connected traffic” accelerate the introduction of ITS throughout all traffic carriers.
ITS DEUTSCHLAND IN NUMBERS
ITS Deutschland organizes frequent events with the topics of mobility and digitization.
The boundaries between logistics, mobility, infrastructure and transport are falling. New, networked, integrated and inter-modal systems are being created. To reflect these changes and to discuss their impact on the economy and society, Messe Frankfurt launches the new trade fair Hypermotion. The central thematic areas are:
Infrastructure (different types of transport, including planning, financing)
Equipment (vehicles, including development and financing)
Services & applications (including research and start-ups)
