Seminar PIARC: CTERM – AISCAT ITS and Smart infrastructure for decarbonized, safe and compliant mobility of passengers and freight

22 Giugno 2022@14:00–18:00
AISCAT Offices
Via Giovanni Battista de’ Rossi 30


The aim of the seminar, promoted by the PIARC Terminology Committee CTERM, in partnership with AISCAT, is to present, based on the works carried out in the TCs 2.3 and 2.4, and TF2.2 of PIARC, solutions to improve and ensure clean, decarbonized, safe and compliant mobility. ITS solutions, connected and autonomous vehicles, smart and connected infrastructure, big data are among the topics to be discussed. A focus will be also made on de-carbonization of road transport, including freight, and on electrification and electric road system (ERS). Another part of the seminar will focus on identification, mitigation and fining of overloads, to protect road infrastructures, to ensure a fair freight transport market and to ensure a compliance of heavy vehicles to the National and European legislation (Directive 96/53EC revised 2015/719). Weigh-in-Motion (IM) technologies will be briefly addressed as a tool for that. In this regard, it is useful to point out that PIARC carried out special projects on ERS (2018), on overloads (2019-20) and oversized vehicles (2021), and that right now a new project is launched on carbon neutrality of road infrastructure and mobility.
