The 20th ITS World Congress was held in Tokyo from 14-18 October, 2013 and GEWI representatives from Germany, Singapore and North America provided TIC product demonstrations at GEWI’s stand in the main exhibit hall.
In addition, GEWI North America CEO Jim O’Neill joined other ITS experts from China, Australia and Singapore presenting in a well attended technical session called “TPEG Services on a Global Scale”. The GEWI presentation detailed how TPEG can be used to improve safety in work zones.
Typhoon Wipha made landfall near Tokyo in the early morning hours of Wednesday 16 October, affecting only the morning hours of the conference and exhibition. By 1pm that afternoon the conference had reopened and attendees were back in full force.
The GEWI exhibit featured the TIC Smart Client for Windows and TIC Smart Client for iPad, used for mobile traffic data entry. TIC has been used for more than 15 years as a platform for a wide range of transportation data services, many of which were included in the main conference topics.
