ITS European Congress Lisbon 2023

The 15th ITS Europe Congress was hosted by the city of Lisbon, from 22 to 24 May 2023. The event’s theme was ‘The Game Changer’, and the programme included topics reflecting some of the most challenging issues and opportunities in mobility. Over 2500 attendees participated in more than 100 Programme sessions.

The EUCAR project Hi-Drive was featured as part of the technical programme on Wednesday 24 May 2023, in the session “Extended and defragmented Operational Design Domains for higher automation” with Aria Etemad, Volkswagen AG, as speaker. Hi-Drive advances the European state-of-the-art of automated driving from SAE Level 3 ‘Conditional Automation’ further up towards ‘High Automation’ by demonstrating in large-scale trials the robustness and reliability of connected and automated driving (CAD) functions.

Next to Hi-Drive, EUCAR members were active in the exhibition area, where participants could learn more about the Connected Cooperative Automated Mobility (CCAM) Partnership and ERTRAC, the European Road Transport Advisory Council.

The ITS Europe Congress is dedicated to smart mobility and the digitalisation of transport. It is organised by the ERTICO Partnership, the European Commission and the host city, this year Lisbon.
