All set for most-attended JCT Traffic Signals Symposium
ITS (UK) members JCT, the organisers of the popular annual Traffic Signals Symposium say everything is ready to deliver their first virtual event, with nearly 400 delegates signed up at time of writing.
The popular event will be held online on Tuesday and Wednesday this week with places free to delegates thanks to the support of a range of event partners.
“It’s been a real learning curve, but we think we’ve mastered the darkest corners of Zoom and are technically ready to present a fascinating two days of papers,” said JCT Director and event organiser John Nightingale (pictured). “We ran the MOVA User Group last Thursday and that worked really well, so I’m confident online delegates will have a very comfortable experience watching the papers through the days.
“Obviously it’s a great same we can’t meet in purpose to share all this knowledge and have our traditional socialising, but the key thing is that we can deliver our event that the industry has come to rely on.”
The Symposium has been made possible thanks to the industry support in the shape of event partners which, as well as ITS (UK), are: AGD, Aldridge, C&T Technology, Clearview Intelligence, COLAS, Dynniq, Highways News, IHE, Integrated Traffic Services, NAL, Now Wireless, PTV, Siemens Mobility, Swarco, Telent, TWM Traffic Control Systems, TRL and Vivacity.
The two days feature more than 20 speakers discussing a range of signal-related innovations as well as wider traffic management and technological initiatives. Each session will feature a Q and A session with the expert speakers.
This is the 25th JCT Traffic Signals Symposium, which was first held in 1996. People can still sign up for the Symposium and read all about the papers being presented here.
