– A National Living Lab for Intelligent Traffic Systems



During the conference you can choose between three breakout sessions. When signing up you have to choose which session you want to participate in. Read more about the sessions here.


Sustainable Mobilities in Liveable and Intelligent Cities

Cities transport challenges are rapidly growing. Cities can invest in Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) to help solve transport challenges to improve capacity, prioritize certain modes of transport, travel time and reductions in stops and delays at intersections.

This session will introduce several noteworthy approaches on implementing different ITS-solutions in cities in Denmark and Estonia. Hear the City of Copenhagen about operational traffic management across municipal borders and the City of Aarhus explaining how standardized data can promote a more agile traffic management. The project Green Wave for buses will also present case examples from Copenhagen, Ballerup and Albertslund (DOLL ITS Living Lab) on (bus)prioritization.

Also, a very interesting example from the City of Tartu in Estonia will be presented. The city has taken a first important step towards sustainable and intelligent transportation implementing a multi-modal system for monitoring urban mobility.

Last, we will have political decision-makers to discuss a shift towards more sustainable modes and possibilities for cross-city traffic management.

Tech & AI: How to Work with the Next Level of Flexibility in ITS

How to build for more intelligence and flexibility? How to understand the system architecture when building e.g. an intelligent traffic light. An architecture that not only optimize the flow of traffic, but also manage input/data from third party vendors for greater flexibility, prioritization of certain modes of transport, multimodality, serve environmental goals, and more.

When integrating and making use of data such as floating car data, data from busses, bikes, car sharing platforms, weather data, environmental data, or the like, what is then the building blocks available to build a flexible and intelligent infrastructure securing better mobility? How to interact with different modes of transport, road authorities, etc.?

And not least, what role does AI have in the future, where data is shared openly ready to be used more intelligently? What challenges does it present and what opportunities are just around the corner?

These are some of the pressing questions that we will explore together with industry experts and other specialists in the field.

Q & A


  Closing remarks, David Guldager


Mobility is both growing and changing. Growth in urban population and online goods consumption is placing new demands on our mobility networks.

Environmental sustainability has become top priority for our cities, yet they still need to be accessible without compromising residents’ quality of life or freedom of mobility. Cities need to redefine the mobility network of the future around people rather than cars.

Mobility data is crucial to understand how people use a city and get around both before, during and after reshaping the urban mobility ecosystem.

In this session we will explore how to enable freedom of mobility using Mobility as a Service (MaaS) and what the challenges are to get there, can a Living Lab facility as DOLL be a catalyzer for testing open mobility and what will it require of authorities, mobility actors, ITS vendors, consultancies etc.?
