Smartfreight Final Conference
Staten hus, Prinsens gate 1 Trondheim, Norway
13-14 October 2010
Agenda and practical information
Over the last three years, SMARTFREIGHT, a research project co-funded by the European Commission, has developed a new concept to integrate urban traffic management systems with the management of freight and logistics in urban areas. Building on the cooperative technology developed in European projects such as CVIS, ICT solutions have been assessed to allow bi-directional wireless communication with individual freight vehicles, so operations can be better supported and controlled. This new concept could lead to a more efficient, environmentally friendly and safer urban freight transport.
This final conference will highlight the new SMARTFREIGHT solutions and will illustrate several possible applications. In order to evaluate the SMARTFREIGHT potential, the city of Trondheim provided a dedicated technical test site. A demonstration will show in practice how the ICT infrastructure set in Trondheim can eventually be used to better coordinate urban and freight management systems.
Who should attend the conference?
Public authorities and traffic managers
freight operators, consultants
