It’s day 4 of the 2019 ITS World Congress in Singapore and the Talking Transport podcast reports on managing traffic flows intelligently, location service solutions, shared mobility and if we are finally starting to accept road user charging.
In today’s podcast SMART Highways editor Paul Hutton speaks to Paulo Humanes, Vice President Business Development & New Mobility at PTV Group, about product optimisation. “There is a big drive to find out how to do this, because in reality you are squeezing the most out of the asset and not necessarily having to build unnecessary infrastructure and you can really manage it and adapt it in an effective way,” says Humanes.
Also on today’s podcast is HERE Technologies Senior Vice President and General Manager APAC, Stanimira Koleva, who is speaking about the company’s expansion. “Asia-Pacific is ever growing importance to our business at HERE Technologies for a number of reasons,” said Koleva.
“We use this region as the home for our global map operations and in our further investments around automation and in scaling our map productions for the world. We decided to base this operation in India and so it is a part of my region and from that point of view it is a home for global map operations,” added Koleva.
Stanimira Koleva will also feature in a Talking Transport special, once the world congress has come to an end.
Talking Transport speaks to Holger Erhardt Head of Traffic Projects at Siemens about the concept of and the acceptance of road user charging. The pioneering of road user charging in Singapore is discussed, as well as how governments need to properly tax and charge in order have thriving transport networks.
