Chair: Valentina GALASSO, Chair of PIARC TC 2.4 (Italy)
Room: South Hall 3AB, 3rd floor

This session shared the results of the work completed by the Road Network Operations / ITS Technical Committee to investigate how technology advances are influencing road network operations. This included an examination of new forms of mobility and the business models associated with Mobility as a Service (MaaS). The TC also identified opportunities and best practices related to the application of data related technologies and data driven decision-making in order to improve the performance of the road network. Finally, the TC reviewed the RNO / ITS manual to improve knowledge sharing focusing on the need of LMICs.

Soichi SUZUKI (Japan), winner of the PIARC Prize "Sustainable Mobility" supported by Spain, presented his paper at this session.
