Down in Africa ...
Heusch/Boesefeldt accepts the invitation of ITS South Africa and presents itself at Cape Town

Invited by the Intelligent Transport Society South Africa on May 28th 2009 Heusch/Boesefeldt gave a half hour presentation on its Central-European experiences in the Workshop on Traffic and Incident Management Control Rooms. Focus of the information exchange within the ITS-Community South Africa was on the traffic and incident management from the perspective of the traffic management centre.

Looking at several different operative traffic control centres Heusch/Boesefeldt’s presentation by the title of Central European Experiences with Control Centres in Regions with Heavy Traffic Volumes outlined the measurable benefits of traffic telematics applications with regard to the improvement of traffic flow and traffic safety.

After the presentation there was a lively discussion on the local applicability of the different traffic management measures at our booth at the associated exhibition. Here, the approximately 70 participants were able to get further information on our own solutions.

Due to the friendly impressions we gathered during our stay at the country hosting the next Football World Championship we are confident that the new contacts can be strengthened and extended in the future.
