The first session, #SS08 session will be Monday October 17th from 3:30-5:00pm on the topic of Probe Data collection and distribution. In his nearly 10 years with GEWI, Matthias has been project manager for many advanced ITS projects and has experience in vehicle probe data from the RTA project in Dubai.
The second session in which Matthias is speaking is #AM14 on Tuesday October 18th from 1:30-3:30pm on the topic of “Using ITS to enable a more resilient and secure transportation network: Global Perspectives.”
Matthias Defee is an excellent choice for this topic as well given his experience as the project manager for the DIANA2 Local Hazard Warning (LHW) project in Hessen Germany. This LHW project is also being demonstrated by GEWI / BMW in the Technology Showcase at ITS World Congress in Orlando. The LHW project has similar requirements to a project being proposed for hazardous materials (Haz-Mat). He will also be demonstrating GEWI’s TIC for iPad application which is one of several possible options for entering or collecting the Haz-Mat data.
