The International Road Federation (Geneva) hosted three workshops at Intertraffic 2018 in collaboration with Swarco, Evonik and PTV.
Tuesday 20 March 2018 – IRF in collaboration with Swarco
An integrated approach to mobility management: Reimagining the role of infrastructure in the new connected and autonomous ecosystem
In recent years, a silo mentality has often prevented cities and road operators to best express the full potential of an integrated approach to mobility. Connecting parking, public transport, lighting urban and interurban traffic management in one holistic solution can help solving mobility challenges way more efficiently. The advent of the connected (soon autonomous) vehicle now offers a new opportunity to overcome these obstacles. C-ITS services are inevitably on the way and many day-1 use-cases are currently deployed on roads worldwide.

Sustainable and Safe Urban Street Design: Meeting Road Safety Targets
By presenting some successful case studies on safe urban street design from around the world, this workshop will provide concrete suggestions on how to develop context-specific and Safe System-based road safety interventions in an urban environment with a particular focus on road markings. The workshop will also mark the launch of the 2018 edition of the Evonik Road Safety Award.

Traffic management for developing countries: tailoring the right solutions
Managing traffic conceals increasingly complex challenges today. Incidents can be unforeseeable or planned: accidents, road works, adverse weather conditions, strikes, demonstrations, major public events, holiday traffic peaks or other capacity overload. But managing “incidents” is only one part of the story. The real challenge and long-term goal is how to tailor the right solutions that can improve the quality of transport, ameliorate the traffic flow, increase the level of road safety while lowering at the same time emissions and noise pollution. In one word: how to deliver a better quality of life to people?
The workshop will discuss how to tailor appropriate traffic management solutions for developing countries and emerging economies.
