AWARD took part in ISFO 2023, in Vienna, on 26 June 2023 hosted by Austriatech.
The 4th International Symposium on Freeway and Tollway Operations took place from June 26th to 30th, 2023, in the vibrant city of Vienna. This premier event provided a unique platform for industry leaders, practitioners, and researchers to come together and delve into the topic of “Unlocking the Potential of Traffic Management for Future Mobility Solutions.”
The AWARD team had the privilege of joining fellow professionals in exploring the seamless integration of new mobility services, optimizing existing infrastructure, and elevating location quality through effective traffic management. The symposium served as a continuation of the series of successful events held in Athens (2006), Honolulu (2009), and Berlin (2016), solidifying its commitment to driving positive change in the realm of traffic management. With a shared vision for a smarter, more efficient transportation landscape, participants eagerly engaged in discussions, knowledge sharing, and innovative approaches to shaping the future of traffic management. The symposium was an unparalleled opportunity to exchange ideas, gain insights from industry pioneers, and foster collaborations that will propel our transportation systems forward.
The 4th International Symposium on Freeway and Tollway Operations in Vienna was a resounding success, leaving participants inspired and equipped with invaluable perspectives to revolutionize the way we manage traffic. Together, we are forging a path towards a brighter, more sustainable future for mobility.
What a start today for me into #ISFO2023 in Vienna, hosted by AustriaTech. In the morning session of the first conference day (26/6/2023) the workshop I organised on “How to implement connected and automated logistic solutions into the overall traffic management.” took place. Thank you to Aggelos Soteropoulos from AustriaTech for his professional moderation, the support of Michael Nikowitz and especially to all speakers for their insights: Alexander Barth presenting the #AWARDH2020 project AWARD-H2020, Konstantinos Mattas, Hany Hassan, Ph.D., P.E., Jacqueline Erhart, Manabu Umeda and Christoph Glauser. One main outcome in a nutshell – international cooperation is key and all efforts for setting up a CCAM cooperation - also on a national level – is worthwhile! And let’s take into consideration all necessary steps from the use case design to the implementation and operation when we work together!
