Chair: Clarissa HAN (Australia), Galen McGILL (United States) and Jennie MARTIN (United Kingdom), TC 2.4 working group leaders
Room: Club H, 1st floor

This workshop session was organised by the PIARC TC2.4 Road Network Operations and ITS – WG2.4.2 (Optimizing road network operation decision-making through new technologies and digitalization). The key objective of WG2.4.2 in this cycle was to identify 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.

In this session, the dynamic impact of data and technology on the operation of road networks, which are undergoing rapid transformation, was explored. The availability of enhanced data access and advanced data analytics has opened up exciting possibilities and applications for road network operators. These advancements not only facilitate the performance monitoring and planning for system improvements but also empower real-time operations. This workshop session showcased ongoing projects and cutting-edge research in this domain from a wide range of countries and regions, while also delving into the potential opportunities for the future.
