While attending ITS America Conference & Expo 2024, we recorded several insightful episodes of our podcast, The Intersection. We conducted interviews with a diverse group of industry leaders, capturing a wide range of perspectives and ideas that are shaping the future of transportation.

Mainstage Contributions

Our team took the stage at ITSA 2024, contributing to the official program through five engaging sessions.

Miovision’s CEO, Kurtis McBride, joined other industry leaders in the keynote panel discussion, “Plenary: Rethinking Infrastructure in the New Digital Era”. Focusing on navigating the future of the US transportation system, they discussed the challenges posed by the lag in national policy, the decisions leaders in public and private sectors are making to invest in digital transformation, and strategies for educating and engaging communities about these digital investments and their impacts on safety, sustainability, equity, and efficiency.

Additional session topics included digital infrastructure and cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) technology, helping to further explore ITS America Conference & Expo 2024’s theme of Accelerating Digital Transformation.

Lyne Jacques, Chief Revenue Officer at Miovision, and Thomas Bauer, CEO and founder of Traffic Technology Services, presented “C-V2X and Digital Infrastructure: City of Montreal Case Study”. Joining forces with other leaders in the industry, the panel explored the key components, benefits, and challenges of implementing C-V2X in Montreal and its positive impact on road safety and traffic management.
