The next ITS World Congress will take place in Singapore, from 21 to 25 October with the theme “Smart Mobility, Empowering Cities”. InterCor will be presented at the congress during the special interest session SIS 18: “Learning lessons from C-ITS early adopters”. This session will take place on Tuesday, 22 October 2019 from 14:00 to 15:30 in Room 330. Gary Crockford of the UK Department of Transportation will present a paper sharing InterCor experience of C-ITS roll-out and evaluation.

Session description
In the UK, we are developing mechanisms to support the implementation of C-ITS technologies on the road network and ensure that best practice is captured and disseminated. We are providing central government funding for “learning for all” support networks to ensure dissemination and learning happen. Funding for C-ITS comes with a requirement to evaluate what is done but the challenges encountered
and lessons learnt from evaluations are rarely published. Published evidence from field operational trials is scarce, meaning there are no templates to follow when developing an evaluation approach. In this session we will share experience of C-ITS rollout and evaluation by looking at the InterCoR programme and the UK Department for Transport’s competition to promote C-ITS in English Local Authorities. We will
also bring in experience from elsewhere around the globe to show what other ‘best practice’ initiatives are taking place in disseminating C-ITS learning.
