COVID-19 has fundamentally changed our nation’s transportation system, from personal mobility to delivery of goods. As we emerge from this pandemic, what does transportation look like in the United States? We have an opportunity now to help shape a Safer, Greener, Smarter future by making smart investments that can have a positive impact on mobility, commuting patterns, supply chain and delivery of goods.
Join us at ITS America 2021 in Atlanta, Georgia as we reimagine transportation and discuss how technology is a foundational piece of a new 21st century transportation system. This event will bring together the entire intelligent transportation community for (4) days of thought-provoking education, networking, technical tours and demonstrations exploring products, emerging technologies and solutions that will enable a better future transformed by intelligent mobility. Join other transportation leaders and influencers as we discuss and explore the deployment of intelligent transportation technologies that saves lives, improves mobility, promotes sustainability, and increases efficiency and productivity – “Reimagining Transportation”
Spotlight on Atlanta
The Atlanta metro area is a hotbed for transportation innovation and exemplifies the theme “Reimagining Transportation.”
At the end of 2019, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms created a new city transportation department and announced $200 million in mobility infrastructure projects with the goal of eliminating traffic fatalities in three years.
On the technology front, suburban Peachtree Corners is home not only to an automated vehicle test track but recently announced that Tortoise will pilot the world’s first remote-controlled shared e-scooters there. Another first is north of Atlanta in Alpharetta, home to the Infrastructure-Automotive Technology Laboratory (iATL), the world’s first facility for developing connected vehicle applications for both vehicles and traffic control devices. In addition, the Georgia Department of Transportation has deployed connected vehicle technology to more than 400 locations across metro Atlanta with plans in the works to connect an additional 1,000 sites.
Georgia World Congress Center
Located in the heart of downtown Atlanta, Georgia World Congress Center (GWCC) features 1.5 million square feet of prime exhibit space and is the world’s largest LEED certified convention center.
Consisting of three interconnected buildings, the GWCC offers a variety of flexible and dynamic spaces and hosts hundreds of world-class events each year.
Steps from the convention center’s doors, visitors will find 22-acre Centennial Olympic Park, state-of-the-art Mercedes-Benz Stadium, home to the Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta United, Chick-fil-A College Football Hall of Fame, and the Atlanta Hawks’ recently renovated nest, State Farm Arena.
