Opportunity to showcase ITS innovations in India
Creation date: 17 July 2006
Following the success of its recent event, held in Brussels in June 2006, the ERTICO-coordinated and EC-supported EU-India eSafety project will organise an ITS showcase in New Delhi on 1-2 February 2007.
Aimed at improving road safety and the efficiency of the transport system in India through the deployment of ITS, the EU-India project has already achieved substantial results. The June 2006 meeting obtained a clear commitment from key players to support Indian ITS deployment activities, and a set of key priorities was identified. Indian urban traffic planning and management must be improved in order to make the most of the existing infrastructure. Digital mapping, traffic data collection and broadcasting will be key factors in this respect. There is also a pressing need to improve the countryís emergency response services.
The February 2007 event will consequently focus on these key priorities, inviting EU stakeholders to exhibit ITS technology in the fields of emergency response services and traffic information services. However, exhibits in other related fields are also welcome.
Key Indian decision makers, research institutes and industry representatives will attend the event. Given the vibrant Indian automobile, electronics and ICT industries and the countryís highly skilled labour force, the prospects for ITS development and deployment in India are good.
