Conference Program








Organized in collaboration with the City of Torino

One of the crucial factors in the making of new millennium cities is the implementation of advanced public transport and private low emission vehicles. People and goods would freely move through  urban centers within a smart mobility system that will avoid traffic congestions and will decrease the air pollution level.The vehicles flow can be managed by advanced information technologies (ICT), able to regulate trade and to provide citizens with the most convenient choice for their planned journey, according to their position and final destination (intermodal transport), always in a context of solutions with low environmental impact and zero emissions.The development of Smart Mobility in urban centers is therefore an essential growth trigger in order to improve the citizens welfare, to strengthen the competitiveness in the automotive and ITS systems, and to maintain the technological leadership at the international level.

HeERO national Conference


Organized by ACI


HeERO addresses the pan-European in-vehicle emergency call service “eCall” based on 112, the common European Emergency number. During three years (January 2011 to December 2013), the nine European countries forming the HeERO consortium will carry out the start-up of an interoperable and harmonised 112 based in-vehicle emergency call system.

The eCall system will help achieving the EU’s objective to decrease the number of severe road injuries and fatalities to 50%. Getting an immediate alert in the event of an accident and knowing the exact location of the crash site cuts emergency services’ response time by 50% in rural and 40% in urban areas. Thanks to this gain in time, eCall is expected to save up to 2,500 lives in the European Union each year, and to mitigate the severity of tens of thousands of injuries. eCall will also result in faster treatment of injured people, thereby giving accident victims better recovery prospects. Arriving at the accident scene sooner will also allow faster clearance of crash sites, thus reducing the risk of secondary accidents, decreasing congestion times, cutting fuel waste and lowering CO2 emissions.

As soon as the eCall device in the car senses a severe impact in an accident, it automatically initiates a 112 emergency call  to the nearest emergency centre and transmits it the exact geographic location of the accident scene and other data. With the same effect, eCalls can also be made manually, at the push of a button. This is convenient if, for instance, you become witness of an accident. Whether the call is made manually or automatically, there will always be a voice connection between the vehicle and the emergency call centre in addition to the automatic data link. This way, any car occupant capable of answering questions can provide the call centre with additional details of the accident.

In the near future, all cars will have an electronic safety system automatically calling emergency services in case of a serious accident. Even if the driver is unconscious, the system will inform rescue workers of the crash site’s exact whereabouts, and the rescues will be on its way within minutes. The system, which has been baptised “eCall”, is going to work all over the European Union. It will soon be rolled out across the EU plus Iceland, Norway and Switzerland.

The HeERO project is partially funded by the European Commission under the ICT PSP programme. The overall project objective of HeERO is to prepare for the deployment of the necessary infrastructure in Europe with the aim of making the harmonised Pan-European interoperable in-vehicle emergency call service “eCall” a reality. The implementation of the eCall service at European level should take into account two major conditions on which its successful operations will depend:

  • Ø Interoperability and cross border continuity: the possibility for any vehicle from any European country travelling across Europe to use the Call service in case of a serious accident should be a service key driver. The interoperability issue covers not only the technical solution but also operations aspect.
  • Ø Harmonisation: the eCall service can work properly across Europe only if developed in a harmonised way in the different countries, still respecting the different national implementations. The use of 112/E112 represents the first steps of this harmonised approach.

The members of the Italian Pilot are: Presidenza del Consiglio dei Ministri (national coordinator), Automobile Club d’Italia, AREU, Centro Ricerche Fiat, Magneti Marelli and Telecom Italia.





Emergency management and Safety


A key challenge is presented to ICT professionals, operators and public security forces involved in public safety and in the operations in disaster management: in recent years the operations on the flow of information which is woven throughout the intervention process of safety and emergency, started. The objective is to solve the difficulties that arise from telecommunications systems that are not compatible, in order to reduce the inactive time both at the time of the first alarm and in how to manage intervention and moreover in order to delete the discontinuity in the monitoring of the status. This is an opportunity to meet and exchange between companies operating in different technological fields, which will present the most innovative products and services, and the needs of active operators in the protection of infrastructure and emergency management. In key areas such as the emergency, the real success factor is the computerized management of geographic information, the ability to collect, analyze and redistribute the information automatically, by means of an effective communication system. This management is feasible through the synergy of technology, telematics and mobile information such as database management, geographic information systems and communications in local and remote network.


  • Geographic Information Systems and on-board systems for Public Safety, Civil Protection, fire fighters and emergency care (118)
  • Encryption voice solutions / data for mobile devices
  • Multi technology Networks for the management of communication in emergencies. TETRA systems and multi-hop ad-hoc radio network

City Logistics: enhancing processes, services, methods and applications in future City Logistics


The growing and cluttered goods distribution in urban area is creating higher costs for the community, falling back into traffic congestion, environment and acoustic pollution and power consumption. This is also caused by the goods city logistics, which can generate solutions to improve accessibility, security and usage feasibility in our cities.

Taking into account these problems is a clear need to identify and implement innovative solutions through intelligent systems able to make our cities accessible, safe and livable.

The conference offers a reflection on how the processes and systems will change  for the urban distribution of goods in light of new policies and plans that have been put in place at government level.

Railway service development and its urban integration


Conference organized in collaboration with the Piedmont Region

The theme of the rolling stock is undoubtedly one of the main problems to be solved for the performance of tenders for rail services. In some cases  Trenitalia (Italian railroad company) purchases rolling stocks (e.g. Marche and Piedmont), in other cases the region itself ( e.g. Friuli-Venezia-Giulia, Lombardy and Sardinia) or the Railway regional company, as an expression of central regional commission and / or as a dealer in the network. However, it is worth underline the important role of the Regions in the choice of type and characteristics of the rolling stock even when the ownership of the rolling stock is in the hands of other parties.

In fact in a call for bids in which the rolling stock has to be be wholly or partly provided by the successor, the contracting entities indirectly play the role of decision-makers, as define in the tender dossier the minimum specifications of the rolling stock and often indicate in the assessment system score achievable with equipment, additional functionality and performance.

Among the features mentioned above, by way of example it is possible to cite the geolocation systems of means, user information in real time in the event of disturbance to the service and info-mobility in general, and security (security and safety).

For this reason, this year, as part of the Smart Mobility World, a session was devoted to rail transport and the role played by the rolling stock and technological innovation essential components for the development of policies of integration with legacy systems urban mobility.

Alternative fuels contribution: innovative tractions systems using bio gas, natural gas and dual fuel


Integrated and planned actions are necessary to significantly reduce pollution from vehicles: new fuel systems must comply with the strict regulations, which require improved specific emissions by about 30% over the next 10 years. This action is conditioned by the slow renewal of circulating vehicles.

A fundamental contribution in the short to medium term must be ensured by gas vehicles, which have great potential in the reduction of PM10 and NOx: they are appreciated by the market especially forv the costs reduction, provide rapid results with both new registrations, but also with interventions on the working capital.

New bi-fuel vehicles, new blends, with the possibility of pushing supplies gas to the liquid state represent the present and future solutions.


  • Dual fuel and natural gas vehicles
  • Liquefied natural gas

International Workshop

A Connected Car is a car equipped with on board localization and communication technologies, internet access, and usually also with a wireless local area network. This allows the car to share internet access to other devices both inside as outside the vehicle and to interact with other vehicles and infrastructures.

Examples of Connected Car technologies are: In-vehicle navigation system with GPS and TMC for providing up-to-date traffic information, Adaptive cruise control (ACC), Lane departure warning system, Lane change assistance system, Collision avoidance system (Precrash system), Intelligent speed adaptation or intelligent speed advice (ISA) system, Night Vision system, Adaptive light control system, Automatic parking system, Traffic sign recognition system, Blind spot detection system, Driver drowsiness detection system, Vehicular communication systems, Electric vehicle warning sounds used in hybrids and plug-in electric vehicles, etc.

As the world’s roads become increasingly congested, drivers are seeking smarter vehicles and transport systems that can give them real-time information about traffic jams, weather conditions, road works and parking availability. At the same time, governments are calling for cars to be able to automatically alert emergency services as soon as a vehicle is involved in an accident and to be equipped with tracking systems to combat theft.

The automotive industry has the potential to play a transformative role in the connected future by delivering new services such as on-demand, in-car entertainment, low-cost pay-as-you-drive insurance, location-enabled security features, real-time fleet management, etc. At the same time, the automotive industry can enhance core vehicle propositions, such as improving vehicle brand image and customer relationship management and delivering a safer and more enjoyable driving experience. The global connected car market will be worth €39 billion in 2018 up from €13 billion in 2012, according to new market forecasts. Over the next five years, there will be an almost seven fold increase in the number of new cars equipped with mobile connectivity designed to meet demand among regulators and consumers for safety and security features, as well as infotainment services an d navigation aids.  The rapid development of the global connected car market will be driven in part by positive regional regulatory action in Europe, Russia and Brazil.

To achieve this market potential, the automotive and mobile industries need to work closely together to deliver scalable, secure, interoperable, ubiquitous and intuitive connected experiences.

Connected Car technologies can support various degrees of automated driving, increase car comfort and safety and therefore road safety.

Event Description:

The aim of this session is to know the state of art of the main initiatives regarding connected car at international level and to encourage the exchange of idea with the main stakeholders of the sector. Both representatives of ITS National Associations at worldwide level and representatives of the industry sector will be involved to share their national strategies to promote this sector.

To accelerate the development and deployment of connected automotive solutions and devices, Telemobility and Green Cars Forum are engaging with automakers, mobile network operators and the wider ecosystem to better understand their needs and to reduce the barriers to adoption.

In the context of a new smart mobility, car sharing is the ideal solution for car use in the city, fron an economical and environmental point of view. The innovative method of car sharing has many advantages. First of all, the car is no longer a commodity but a service. Maintenance and insurance  costs associated with the use of the automobile are considerably lowered. It is also essential to consider the reduction of pollutant emissions, due to the fact that more people share the same vehicle; the security of a car park as there are areas dedicated to the service throughout the city. Moreover the cars that are part of the fleet dedicated to car sharing in many cities have permission to transit the restricted traffic zones. Currently the situation of car sharing in Italy and in the world is constantly changing: big cities are reorganizing spaces to start the car sharing and even car manufacturers are creating new most appropriate veichles. The new proposals include sharing services of electric cars without the constraints of fixed parking, making the car sharing free scheme by far the most effective mode of operation.
