A new app-based solution for city-centre parking, a journey time monitoring solution and a connected corridor test bed are among the innovative projects shortlisted for the ITS (UK) Awards, held on 16 October at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry.
The awards, in their 14th year, take place at a relaxed celebration of excellence in the country’s transport technology sector, hosted at the President’s Dinner by ITS (UK) President Steve Norris.
The five categories recognise a lifetime contribution to ITS and the Young Professional of the year, along with awarding ITS project of the year, inclusive mobility and innovative use of technology.
They are being judged by a range of experts across the industry.
“Having so many excellent entries shortlisted for these awards show just how strong the ITS Industry is in this country,” says Ian Patey, ITS (UK) Chair. “These are prestigious awards and the winners and runners up will be rightly proud of their achievements.”
“The ITS (UK) Awards are a key part of our annual President’s Dinner where we celebrate the best in our country’s transport technology projects and people,” added ITS (UK) Secretary General Jennie Martin. “I would like to thank the judges who have had a very tough job choosing the winners from such a strong list of entries.”
The Annual President’s Dinner and Awards takes place the night before the ITS (UK) Summit which debates the policy, implementation and funding of future mobility technology. To book your place go to www.itssummit.co.uk.
