This wording was chosen to illustrate how ITS products and services can be deployed now by cities and urban conurbations to lay a strong foundation for population increases and growth in demand for mobility. Glasgow was organised around five key topics 1) From standalone to connected to automated 2) Bringing services to users 3) Transport applications of satellite technologies 4) Sustainable transport for people and goods 5) ITS and climate change.
