• Transport Systems Telematics Conference

    March 20-24, 2018, Poland

Report on the TST’17

Report on the TST’17

For many years we have been gathering on the “Transport Systems Telematics” Conference in a group of people interested in the development of transport Telematics. The conference enables exchanging experience and learning the most recent technologies and trends in development directions of intelligent transport systems. The conference is related to the ITS development programme in the area of all modes of transport infrastructure.

The term intelligent transportation systems refers to innovative technological and organisational solutions applied in transportation which facilitate the functioning of transport infrastructure and which improve the safety. Currently, due to the dynamic development of the transportation system, some adverse phenomena are becoming more intensive. There are modern traffic management systems being implemented, which bring many benefits that improve the quality of transportation. Intelligent transportation systems contribute to the optimisation of transport mobility and improvement of the quality of transport services, which have positive economic effects, as well as decreasing the environmental impact and improving road safety.

The conference was inaugurated in 2010, this year we have met for the 17th time. The Polish Association of Transport Telematics was the main Conference organiser. The conference took place under the patronage of the Minister of Infrastructure and Construction and of the Marshal of the Silesian Voivodeship, as well as of the Transport Committee of the Polish Academy of Sciences. Eleven scientific journals from the field of transport and the Springer publishing house and a multimedia publisher Wykładnia provided a media patronage over the Conference.

We started the conference with a plenary session in the Advanced Information Technology Centre of the University of Economics in Katowice, integrating with a series of year-long celebrations of the university’s 80th anniversary.

Nearly 100 papers were submitted for the conference, from the area of all modes of transport infrastructure, which were presented – apart from the plenary session – in 6 scientific sessions, 2 poster sessions and 2 sessions of scientific announcements.

In particular, the papers were related to:
– Architecture of Intelligent Transport Systems
– Strategy for introducing transport telematics solutions
– Telematic services
– Control and management systems in transport, and
– Safety of transport telematics systems

The conference was aimed at familiarising the participants with the most recent trends in transport improvements, resulting from the current world achievements of Telematics. An extensive exchange of experience, and also of transport-related practitioners and scientists opinions, took place. The attendance at the conference was a good opportunity to present the hitherto achievements and to outline the directions for the transport Telematics development.

We invite to the TST conference in 2018, which will be held between 20 and 24 March 2018.

ABOUT CONFERENCE
XVIII conference ”Transport Systems Telematics” TST’18 will take place between 20 and 24 March 2018 as already the 18th international scientific-technical meeting, during which specific achievements and practical applications of telematic systems will be presented. The TST conference enables exchanging experience and learning the most recent technologies and trends in development directions of intelligent transport systems in the area of all modes of transport infrastructure.

The term of intelligent transport systems refers to innovative technological and organisational solutions in transport, facilitating the transport infrastructure operation and improving safety of traffic participants. Intelligent transport systems contribute to the optimisation of transport mobility and to the improving in the transport services quality, which in turn translates into positive economic effects, reduced environmental impact and improved traffic safety.

The conference will be aimed at familiarising the participants with the most recent trends in transport improvements, resulting from the current world achievements of telematics. It will enable a broad exchange of experience and also will facilitate exchange of opinion between practitioners and scientists related to transport.

The conference organisers invite to cooperate everybody, who would like to present their achievements in the fields related to the conference topics. The attendance at the conference will be a good opportunity to present the hitherto achievements and to outline the directions for the transport telematics development.
