Reducing Emissions and Avoiding Congestion: Kapsch TrafficCom Presents Innovative Solutions and Smart Urban Mobility at the ITS World Congress 2021

In terms of sustainable mobility in cities, avoiding congestion is a key
issue. Intelligent traffic management enables quick, effective solutions and
positive effects on the environment and quality of life. From October 11 to
15, experts from Kapsch will be presenting their mobility solutions for
digital traffic control and intelligent networking of vehicles and roads at
booth 5405 (Messe Hamburg).

The negative economic and ecological effects of congested road networks are
undisputed. For example, a quarter of all greenhouse gas emissions in Europe
are attributable to traffic. The fact that this is also causing resentment
among those affected was recently made clear by the Kapsch TrafficCom
Index-2021: 70 % of German and 74 % of Austrian respondents no longer
consider road traffic emissions to be acceptable.

Intelligent traffic management enables traffic authorities to record and
respond to traffic conditions in real time. While conventional solutions are
time-delayed and inaccurate, a proactive solution takes into account current
traffic conditions and combines measures such as dynamic pricing,
intelligent vehicle routing and signal optimization to manage demand from
private motorized transport.

“Traffic congestion and its associated emissions create a public health
crisis and cause millions of dollars in lost productivity. That’s why we are
driving innovation and technology in key areas such as Connected Driving,
Smart Roads and Smart Mobility Pricing. All these elements need to work
together if we want to achieve sustainable change”, says Gerd Gröbminger,
Vice President Sales CENECA at Kapsch TrafficCom.

You can get more detailed insights into these and other Kapsch TrafficCom
technologies at booth 5405 at Messe Hamburg, as well as during a panel
discussion on 13.10. in room 2 of exhibition building B4, where Kapsch
expert Balazs Barnucz will talk about the possibilities of AI for traffic
analysis.
