The Greenwave project team will be sharing progress on our innovative project at a range of industry events, including:
CIMEC final project conference, 18 May 2017, Brussels. The findings and next steps from this 2-year project exploring Cooperative ITS for Medium-sized European Cities; Birmingham was one of the participant cities. Teresa Jolley will be attending.
ITS European Congress, 19-22 June 2017, Strasbourg. Steve George is part of panel session PR08, Topic 2: Improving efficiency of freight and logistics through C-ITS.
Session description, sourced from event programme: “A vast amount of technologies is already available today to manage different aspects of goods movement, but these existing systems are currently not always linked to each other, missing the opportunity to optimise their performance through coordination, above of individual business requirements. This session will prove the value of C-ITS in optimising goods movement in urban and suburban areas by reporting on the results of the 5 services deployed by European project CO-GISTICS in 7 logistics hubs, some of them also part of the COMPASS4D network, having tested similar services for passengers. The services deployed by CO-GISTICS and the project partners have proven good results in increasing efficiency of logistics operations such as port loading/unloading optimisation, last mile delivery and automation as well as reducing CO2 emissions correlated to large fuel savings and full transparency of use of vehicles.”
Transport Practitioners Meeting, 28-29 June 2017, Nottingham. Teresa Jolley is part of a plenary session, poster presention and workshop co-facilitiator.
Polis Annual conference, 6-7 December 2017, Brussels. Steve George
