IT-TRANS is the leading trade fair and conference dedicated to the discussion and continued development of IT solutions for intelligent urban transport systems. From 3 to 5 March 2020, the international public transport sector will come together for the seventh time at the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre to learn more about the latest product innovations and discuss current challenges the industry is facing.

During the three-day conference, scientists, industry experts and opinion leaders will have the opportunity to present their innovative visions to an audience of international professionals. The focus of the conference will be „Smart Travellers in Smart Systems“. The conference will revolve around eight main themes which encompass the current priorities of, challenges to, and opportunities for the sector:

Industry experts who are interested in contributing to the conference programme can submit innovations and best practices on the following website until Thursday, 10 October. The application must include the objectives and an abstract of the speech as well as a biographical note including a photo of the speaker. A conference committee, which includes representatives of the International Association of Public Transport (UITP), the Association of German Transport Companies (VDV) and the Italian transport association ASSTRA, is responsible for the conference programme.

IT and digitalisation play a crucial role in urban public transport and mobility – not only in the organisation and administration of our systems, operating processes and services, but also in the behaviour and expectations of passengers. The focal point of IT-TRANS is solutions to support the operation of public transport networks and the management of urban transport systems. IT-TRANS demonstrates how public transport can profit from intelligent technologies such as connected and autonomous vehicles, predictive maintenance, virtual reality and the Internet of Things (IoT).
