When disruptions happen the ability of road operators to deliver information properly to road users may be compromised and the efficiency of road operations may be jeopardized. Hazards occurring along the network (like winter extreme situations or high impact events for example) can be a challenge for many Road Operators in terms of ensuring the viability of the road, and therefore the mobility of people and goods along the network itself.
New technologies offer new possibilities to engage with road users and avoid disruptions. This session aim at presenting some of most promising applications of new technologies to Road Network Operators and ITS solutions.
