For many years, the Polish ITS Congress has constituted a meeting place for experts as well as an opportunity for in-depth presentations of scientific and research papers, the results of which can have practical application. Like in the previous years, the participants have shown great interest in the Congress and the many topics covered. This year’s 11th edition of the congress hosted over 30 presentations, 2 panel discussions and 1 debate, divided into the following subject areas:
•    Session: Mobility management, traffic management and information systems for users
•    Session: Intelligent data collection and processing
•    Debate between Dziennik Gazeta Prawna [Daily Legal Newspaper] and ITS POLSKA
•    Session: Autonomous Vehicles and V2X systems
•    Panel discussion: Autonomous Vehicles and V2X systems
•    Panel discussion of the PIIT (Polish Chamber of Information Technology and Telecommunications)
•    Session: ITS design, effects, benefits and standards

The Congress was ceremonially opened by Mr Karol Okoński, the Under-Secretary of State at the Ministry of Administration and Digitization. The following people also participated in the opening session of the Congress: Paweł Engel, Director of the Transport Analysis Department at the Centre for EU Transport Projects, Iwona Stępień-Kotlarek, Deputy General Director for National Roads and Motorways, Piotr Pryciński, Deputy Director of the Programme Management Department at the National Centre for Research and Development, Wojciech Suchorzewski, Chairman of the Programme Council and Tomasz Kamiński, Motor Transport Institute, President of the Committee on Architecture and Standardization of ITS.
 
On 22 May, during the first session entitled ‘Mobility management, traffic management and information systems for users,’ speakers shared their experiences and solutions with respect to information, traffic management and mobility management systems. Ms Ewa Wolniewicz Warska, Kapsch Telematic Services, spoke about low emission zones in practice, while Mr Tamás Dombi, Public Transport Authority in Warsaw, discussed intelligent traffic management for all traffic participants—a challenge of the 21st century. Mobility as a service, or a new starting point for ITS systems, was the topic presented by Martyna Abendrot, PTV CEE. Representatives of the University of Warsaw presented MOPsik, a system notifying drivers about rest areas, while employees of the Gdańsk University of Technology discussed methods and systems of informing about road surface condition using digital image processing. Mr Arkadiusz Drabicki and Rafał Kucharski from the Cracow University of Technology shared selected conclusions from a questionnaire study concerning the methods of shaping future real-time information delivery systems with respect to overcrowding in public transport networks. Wojciech Chmiel from the AGH University of Science and Technology in Kraków shared a presentation on smart traffic management using autonomous traffic signs. Damian Hajduk and Paweł Gora from the University of Warsaw talked about OnePlan, an integrated multimodal transport organization system. The session was closed by Krzysztof Łakota, Municipal Road Authority in Rzeszów, with a presentation about ITS solutions—existing and being implemented—as part of the extension of the road traffic management system shown through the example of the city of Rzeszów.

The second session during the first day of the Congress tackled intelligent data collection and processing with 9 interesting talks. Vitronic Machine Vision representatives discussed the role of ANPR systems in transport policy and internal state security, while Janusz Wróbel, Neurosoft, shared his experiences from the operation of a multi-sensor smart neural parking system measuring the usage of large parking lots. Next, representatives of the Gdańsk University of Technology talked about their experiences with comparative road traffic measurements using varied technological solutions, and about detection and subjective tracking of vehicles based on noise in the context of pedestrian safety. Representatives of the Motor Transport Institute discussed effects of the RID 4D project implemented for the General Directorate for National Roads and Motorways (GDDKiA) and the impact of ITS on safety and efficiency of road traffic. The second part of the session began with the presentation of the representatives of the Warsaw University of Technology on the use of vehicle probing data to indicate the presence of local jams on expressways in Poland. On the other hand, representatives of the University of Warsaw shared their knowledge about predicting travel times using machine learning, and about designating the number of parking spaces needed at rest areas using road traffic simulations. The session was closed with the presentation of the representative of the Warsaw University of Technology about the use of vehicle probing data to assess the variability of travel times.

During the two days of talks, the Organizers and their partners organized one debate and two panel discussions, which were met with great interest among the participants. Like in previous years, Dziennik Gazeta Prawna hosted a debate whose guests debated about the role of ITS in legal and financial support of sustainable mobility, electromobility and low emission reduction policies. The discussion covered all fee categories: motorways, parking, entering the Centre, low emission zones, electromobility support (tax reliefs and other privileges) and the role of ITS tools in each subtopic. On the second day, we were able to attend a speech on autonomous vehicles and V2X systems, while the Polish Chamber of Information Technology and Telecommunications prepared a panel discussion on IT opportunities and limitations of effective mobility management in Polish cities.

The first session of the second day of the Congress on 23 May this year covered the topic of autonomous vehicles and V2X systems. First, the representative of the Ministry of Infrastructure talked about the strategic approach to C-ITS. Then, Przemysław Staśkowiak, Kapsch Telematic Services, discussed communications technologies for C-ITS. Simulational autonomous and communicating vehicle traffic models were presented by the representatives of the University of Warsaw, Cracow University of Technology and Edinburgh Napier University. The concept of a smart traffic sign for adaptive vehicle traffic regulation (INZNAK) was the topic presented by the Gdańsk University of Technology with companies Microsystem and Siled. Representatives of the Gdańsk University of Technology also talked about the smart traffic sign as a terminal of the communication system between vehicles and road infrastructure. Finally, Ms Paula Razin, Motor Transport Institute, talked about the transfer of control in vehicles with contingent autonomization.

The session was supported by the panel discussion on Autonomous Vehicles and V2X systems. The guests discussed issues related to autonomous vehicle roadworthiness certification in Poland (infrastructure, data transfer, insurance liability, road traffic safety), experiences of other countries with respect to autonomization of vehicles, increase in societal mobility, including the disabled and the elderly, issues of taking over control over a vehicle and limiting the ability to drive it (lack of experience), preparations for implementing autonomous vehicles in Poland—domestic actions, compatibility of autonomous vehicles with ITS (in particular data exchange between the road infrastructure and vehicles), autonomous vehicles: an opportunity for the Polish economy?

The final, fourth session of the Congress concerned ITS design, effects, benefits and standards. Michał Łęcki, Elmark Automatyka, discussed the role of industrial networks and the issue of designing them in ITS and National Traffic Management Systems.
Piotr Świątalski, APM PRO, presented the effects and benefits of implementing OnDynamic, while Arkadiusz Cetner, AB Micro, talked about the integration of dispatch systems with large visualization screens at Traffic Management Centres. Jan Żukowski, Sprint, talked about whether ITS is a trend or necessity and whether only large cities can afford it. Marcin Zawadzki, Microsoft, spoke about minimizing project risk as the main factor of success. Representatives of the Warsaw University of Technology talked about automation standards and smart machine behaviours, while the representatives of ITS POLSKA Lublin Office discussed the digital G5 5.9 GHz radio communication system as the international ITS communication standard for road transport.
