In October, Resolve Group’s Managing Director, Martin Leak, was invited to speak at the 19th Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) World Congress, in Vienna. Discussion centred around how vital the deployment of ITS is for improved efficiency, safety, sustainability, mobility and environmental performance. With resources continuing to be limited, the central issues under discussion were how to link investment and performance, and how to define the mechanisms that connect the two.
Other speakers included Mr Kirk Steudle, President, AASHTO & Director, Michigan DOT (USA); Mrs Linda Watson, President and CEO, Capital Metropolitan Transportation Authority, (USA); Mr Kyong Soo Chon, Professor, Seoul National University (Korea); Mr Cees de Wijs, Group President, International Transportation and Government, Xerox (The Netherlands); and Mr Fotis Karamitsos, Acting Deputy Director General, European Commission, DG MOVE. The panel was chaired by Mr Peter Sweatman, Director, University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute – UMTRI (USA).
