At this year’s World Congress, Smart Highways magazine editor Paul Hutton will be presenting podcasts covering a range of issues being discussed at the event. There are four “Countdown to Congress” podcasts available in the run-up to the event, and there will be daily “Congress Today” programmes from Melbourne during Congress itself. They will include contributions from speakers, organisers, delegates, exhibitors all offering news and opinion.
- Paul is a trained broadcast journalist who has worked on a variety of radio and TV stations across the UK, and is also an ITS professional having run the traffic news operation of Trafficlink (now INRIX Media) and then spending five years as Managing Director of Global Traffic Network Europe where he also worked on traffic operations in Australia and North America.
In the first of the podcasts (below) we hear from ITS Australia’s CEO Susan Harris who previews the congress sessions, while her namesake Richard Harris of Xerox gives his views about one of the key subjects, Mobility as a Service. We have another viewpoint on MaaS and the wider technology changes we are seeing from Steve Gooding of the RAC Foundation, with a warning for us not to get carried away. And Swarco’s Richard Neumann explains what’s in it for businesses when they come to congress.
