Bridging The Technology Gaps in Local Transport


The Institution of Engineering and Technology, in association with ITS (UK) and the Department for Transport, is holding a must-attend event, RTIC-Interactive!, in Birmingham, UK on Tuesday 9 May for anyone with a vested interest in how to bridge the technology gaps in local transport.

The Road Transport Information & Control (RTIC) conference series started in 1982. RTIC-Interactive! updates this important Intelligent Transport Systems event into a day for clients, decision makers, ITS local authority policy planners and technology suppliers to work together, share their experiences and come up with solutions to today’s local transport challenges.

The sessions on this interactive day will feature presentations, panel discussions and round-table workshops – where a particular technical challenge raised by delegates prior to event will be explored. We invite you to shape the agenda of the round-table workshops by choosing the most relevant challenges from a list of topics included in the registration form.

RTIC-Interactive! has been organised as the follow up to the recently launched second edition of the IET & ITS (UK) Local Authority Guide to Emerging Transport Technology. This practical guide addresses the advances in technology over the past few years and is aimed at helping local authorities to plan for the future. A selection of innovative case studies covered in the Guide will be presented on the day. Please click here to download a free copy of the Guide.

Why attend?
If you are a Local Authority, Public Transport Network or Operator, attending this event will enable you to:
• Share your challenges and explore potential solutions with ITS technology providers through a series of panel discussions and round-table workshops
• Benefit from the knowledge and experience gained in other Local Authorities by hearing case studies demonstrating how new ideas and ITS have been implemented in a local transport system environment.

For ITS technology suppliers, integrators, consultants and university research centres, RTIC-Interactive! is an opportunity to:
• Learn how you can help Local Authorities improve efficiency with reduced budgets and increasing needs
• Discuss and offer solutions to problems, and explain how emerging technology can drive the delivery of innovation
• Find out what Local Authorities need in order to invest in new areas.
