MT-ITS Conference

After the successful meetings in Rome in 2009 and 2011 in Leuven the 3rd International Conference on Models and Technologies for Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) will be held in Dresden in December 2013. The main topic of this meeting will be the intermodal use of ITS in urban traffic.


In public transport vehicle related devices act as sensors for the acquisition and transfer of traffic data, e. g. the positions of busses and trams which are sent to intermodal transport control systems (ITCS) or the communication between vehicles and traffic lights. In private traffic several systems based on vehicle’s on-board units or mobile devices have been tested and in part been put in operation within the last years.

Based on vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication (V2I), an increasing market penetration of cooperative systems will affect traffic management in urban areas and might improve its possibilities. One of the prospective challenges is to combine data and information gathered by infrastructure related systems with the one of cooperative systems. Science has to deal with both, possibilities and challenges, to achieve additional benefit for the future intermodal mobility management.

Beside this main topic, the third edition of MT-ITS calls for papers on models and technologies of ITS for air, rail and long-distance road transport.

The conference language is English.

In order to continue and intensify the exchange of science and regular operation, one day of the conference will be designated to case studies and implementation aspects. On that day, the conference participants might also join the 9th annual meeting of the ViMOS Competence Centre for Operational Traffic Management which will be held in German language at the same location. At this conference people from science, industry, public authorities as well as transport operators meet to discuss implementation and operation aspects of current ITS projects.
