On October 29th and November 2nd, the ITS World Congress 2017 was held in Montreal and K2 Geospatial was a part of this event. The 24th Congress brought together participants who wanted to learn more about various topics, all converging to the headline: ‘’Next generation integrated mobility: driving smart cities’’. A remarkable range of Information Technology Solutions (ITS) products are now deployed by cities and urban conurbations and the Congress’ wording wanted to reflect this aspect in its title. Over 200 organizations were involved in a very busy Exhibition, and Montreal held the largest set of technology and services demonstrations at a Congress to date. By participating to the ITS Congress, K2 Geospatial representatives had an opportunity for ‘’hands-on’’ experience of vehicle-to-infrastructure connectivity and a link to improved safety and efficiency.
* The World Congress on Intelligent Transport Systems (commonly known as the ITS World Congress) is an annual conference and trade show to promote ITS technologies. ERTICO (ITS Europe), ITS America, ITS AsiaPacific and ITS Japan are its sponsors. Each year the event takes place in a different region (Europe, Americas or Asia-Pacific). The first ITS World Congress was held in 1994 in Paris followed by the 2nd Yokohama in 1995 and the 3rd Orlando in 1996. The rotation of the venue location among the regions of the world continued.
