This week's Talking Transport podcast discusses two forthcoming major events for the ITS sector; one on each side of the Atlantic and neither to be missed.
Sponsored by 3M Connected Roads, Talking Transport looks at the UK's leading live demonstration and exhibition event Traffex Seeing is Believing at Bruntingthorpe and the ITS America Annual Meeting in Detroit.
Kier's network technology director Paul Wilson discusses Traffex Seeing is Believing taking place on the 27 and 28 June at Bruntingthorpe in Leicestershire. He also gives us his thoughts on the company's smart motorway delivery, connected and autonomous vehicles and future investment.
Setting the scene for the ITS America Annual Meeting in Detroit in early June, Talking Transport speaks to the director of Michigan's Department for Transportation, Kirk Steudle, who discusses his support for ITS, the comeback of Detroit and what that means for transport as well as the challenge of finding funds to innovative new projects.
There's also a round-up of the latest news headlines in the roads sector from our sister sites Highways and- the home of all the latest cutting edge intelligent transport news - SMART Highways.
