Mercedes-Benz Group AG joins ITS World Congress as Engagement Partner

The ITS World Congress is the world’s largest and most prominent event focused on smart mobility and the digitalisation of transportation.

Every year, ERTICO organises a European or World Congress in a major European City, with the ITS World Congress in Europe every third year.

The Congresses are the yearly celebration of smart mobility: they underline the importance of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS), particularly in cities and regions where they are hosted, and provide an excellent platform that supports the education, thought-leadership, business development, and the overall steady growth of the smart mobility industry. They include live, interactive and thought-provoking sessions where industry experts present the latest developments in ITS, showcasing and demonstrating cutting-edge technology within the event’s spacious exhibition, technical tours and live demonstration opportunities. The Congresses offer stakeholders and patrons the ultimate platform to meet industry influencers and decision makers to discuss emerging and seminal topics in the field and to gain insights into future industrial technological advances and the policies required to support the sector’s rapid growth.

Mercedes-Benz AG strives to make cities more livable with safe, sustainable, efficient and accessible mobility products.

Every day the company asks: 'How can we bring future into reality?' It is the company's aim to push boundaries by bringing Mercedes-Benz mobility expertise into cities to create shared value. Today's challenges of urban mobility are highly complex and it is essential to listen to regions, cities and, most of all, to citizens. The needs are similar: urban mobility must be safer, more efficient, more sustainable and easily accessible. The solutions, though, can be very individual or, as the company says 'context-based'. To meet these needs, Mercedes-Benz brings urban functionalities into the vehicles that address specific requirements in a dynamically changing urban environment. It’s all about bringing the right data, to the right time at the right place. By consulting cities and other urban players the company can design and implement holistic mobility systems as an end-to-end mobility integrator, to successfully address any urban mobility challenge.

We believe the ITS World Congress 2021 is the best fit for Mercedes-Benz to show how the use of vehicle-data improves safety and optimizes traffic flows within urban areas. Our mission is clear: Together we can shape intelligent and sustainable mobility for cities, that put humans first.

Head of Urban Mobility Solutions at Mercedes-Benz AG
