Explore the future of urban transport accompanied by a delicious breakfast!
This edition is presented in line with l'Odyssée des sciences.
In association with the Jeune Chambre de commerce de Montreal, the Quartier de l’innovation organizes 5 morning conferences on hot topics. Montreal is the biggest academic city in Canada and this event gives the opportunity for professors from our partner universities to promote their academic expertise in a dynamic environment. The overall objective is to give citizens and members of the business community insights into a variety of markets and business sectors.
Intelligent transportation systems (ITS) are advanced applications which, without embodying intelligence as such, aim to provide innovative services relating to different modes of transport traffic management and enable various users to be better informed and make safer, more coordinated, and «smarter» use of transport networks. They are considered a part of the Internet of things.
Access the insight of two eminent research professors in the field of ITS.
Professor in the department of construction engineering, ÉTS
After completing a bachelors and masters degree in science at the Università di Ferrara, Professor Fausta took on a PhD a the Politecnico di Milano. Since then, he teaches at l'ÉTS in the department of construction engineering. His expertise includes modelisation and planning of transportation systems, flexible public transportation systems, problems of vehicle tours, combinatorial optimisation and more. Fausto is also part of the research units of STEPPE (Station expérimentale des procédés pilotes en environnement) and CIRRELT (Centre interuniversitaire de recherche sur les réseaux d'entreprises, la logistique et le transport).
Luis F. Miranda-Moreno
Associate professor, Faculty of Civil Engineering, McGill University
Professor Miranda-Moreno's speciality is in transportation engineering with a focus on road safety, traffic monitoring and demand modelling, and sustainable transport strategies. His research interests include the development of crash-risk analysis methods, the integration of emergency technologies for traffic monitoring, the impact of climate on transportation systems, the analysis of short and long-term changes in travel demand, the impact of transport on the environment, the evaluation of energy efficiency measures and non-motorized transportation.
