GEWI Exhibited and Presented at ITS Canada

Vancouver, BC was the location for the 2011 ACGM, Annual Conference & General Meeting for ITS Canada, June 12-15th at the Fairmont Hotel.

GEWI exhibited, demonstrated TIC3, and presented a paper at the conference.

Over 50 papers were presented under three main tracks at the conference:

  • Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) as a Tool in Challenging Economic Times.
  • Optimization Through the Integration of Systems and Data.
  • Achieving Sustainability Through ITS.

GEWI presented a paper detailing how connected vehicles can improve road safety by alerting drivers of Local Hazard Warnings (LHW). This is done using the TEC application within TPEG, used by the next generation of navigation devices.

LHW is just one of many benefits provided to the drivers in TPEG connected vehicles. Others include traffic flow and prediction, parking, traffic events, weather and more, as TPEG is an extendible protocol. Drivers could be made aware of many real time events, such as where roads have been cleared of snow.
