Two forthcoming major events for the ITS sector, one on each side of the Atlantic, are the subject of this week’s Talking Transport Podcast, sponsored by 3M Connected Roads, as we talk about the ITS America Annual Meeting in Detroit and Traffex Seeing is Believing at Bruntingthorpe in the UK.
While we set the scene for the ITS America Annual Meeting in Detroit by talking to the Director of Michigan’s Department for Transportation Kirk Steudle, we discuss much more than that event as he talks about, among other things his support for ITS, the comeback of Detroit and what that means for transport as well as the challenge of finding funds to innovative new projects.
Meanwhile Kier’s Network Technology Director Paul Wilson discusses Traffex Seeing is Believing taking place on the 27 and 28 June at Bruntingthorpe in Leicestershire. He also gives us his thoughts on the company’s smart motorway delivery, CAVs and future investment.
There’s also a round-up of the latest news headlines on the Highways Magazine and SMART Highways websites.
