The ITS World Congress 2021 for Intelligent Transport and Mobility Systems closed its doors in Hamburg on Friday, after a record 13,000 guests, 400 exhibitors from all over the world and around 4,000 members of the public came to the exhibition during the week of 11-15 October 2021 and especially on the Public Day (14 October 2021). The congress not only distinguished itself with the trade exhibition and a first-class lecture programme, but also showed in numerous demonstrations and sightseeing tours what the mobility of the future will look like - and that it can already be experienced in Hamburg and on the TAVF test track. Furthermore, the ITS World Congress has shown that the car only plays a role as one part of urban mobility solutions. Bicycles, automated buses and metros, drones, e-scooters, car sharing and ridehailing, also represent the new diversity in the mobilisation of metropolitan areas.
The focus is now on implementing the goals of Hamburg's ITS strategy by 2030 and driving forward the mobility transition, improving traffic flow, increasing road safety and reducing negative environmental impacts.
