Hamburg as a digital city
Hamburg is a city with 1.8 million residents, around 350,000 commuters out and about within its borders every day, and 5.3 million people living in the surrounding metropolitan area. Whether you prefer a car or a bike, riding the bus or the train, or you find yourself working with a cargo bike or driving a truck - flexible and sustainable mobility concepts are particularly important for you and for a large metropolis like the port city of Hamburg and its surrounding region. That's why from October 11 to 15, 2021, the ITS World Congress concerned itself most of all with one question: What will our mobility look like in the future?
ITS Public Day: 14 October, 2021
ITS stands for 'Intelligent Traffic and Transport Systems'. But innovative projects relating to mobility, transport and logistics needn't just be experienced by specialist communities at the ITS World Congress. After all, these topics affect everyone in the larger Hamburg metropolitan region and the projects that are being developed have local and international appeal. That's why everyone was invited to experience the ITS World Congress live in Hamburg at the ITS Public Day on 14 October, 2021. There visitors could discover and explore tomorrow's mobility under the motto 'Experience Future Mobility Now'. Offerings included moderated tours of the most important ITS projects in Hamburg, live demonstrations, lectures, workshops and hands-on activities.
In total, around 50 of the ITS-relevant projects in Hamburg that were testing and implementing smart and innovative mobility and logistics concepts at this time were on display. As so-called anchor projects, these particularly important projects form a crucial basis for the implementation of Hamburg's ITS strategy. Among other things, the projects seek to promote innovation, reduce traffic-related environmental impacts and increase traffic safety and efficiency. The anchor projects include the autonomously driving HEAT bus, digitised parking management, smart loading and delivery zones, best price determination for HVV transit and growing sharing options for bicycles, cars and shuttle services.
