A community-based approach to driving change in mobility
Dr Paul Vorster, CEO of Intelligent Transport Society South Africa (ITSSA), details the responsibilities of the ITS community in incubating positive change for the future of connected mobility.
The fourth industrial revolution is having a transformational effect on most sectors of industry and society, but few more so than mobility. We don’t have the luxury of reinventing the wheel, but thanks to technology, we can at least reimagine and reassess how it turns.
Transport is becoming smarter: 5G connectivity is multiplying the magnitude of devices in the Internet of Things; big data and cloud computing are delivering real-time answers; and machine learning and artificial intelligence are rapidly creating new avenues that were previously unthinkable within mobility.
