There is a natural fit between ITS/Smart Mobility and Public Transport and the synergy created by co-hosting the Smart Mobility Conference and Exhibition 2020 paves the way for significantly greater continent-wide and international participation to open new avenues for smart transport operations across Africa.
The synergies released through the joint efforts exceeded expectations and supported by industry feedback, this flagship conference and exhibition will take place on 5-8 October 2020 as a co-operative project to assist the Public Transport, Intelligent Transport and related industry sectors in pursuing our shared strategic objectives. Raising the cooperation to a higher level, this event will be structured as the Smart Mobility Conference and Exhibition.
The Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) is ramping up the challenges. This is true for all sectors of society and mobility is at its cutting edge. 5G connectivity is multiplying the magnitude of devices in the Internet of Things (IoT). Big Data and Cloud Computing are delivering real-time answers while machine-leaning and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are rapidly hitherto unthinkable avenues to make mobility smarter and the Platform Economy introduces novel ways of connecting Mobility as a Service (MaaS) solutions.
