ESRIUM took part in the ISFO 2023 in Vienna: The 4th International Symposium on Freeway and Tollway Operations (ISFO), under the theme “Innovation Advances Towards the Future of Managing Traffic.” This prestigious event hosted by AustriaTech aims to go beyond traditional traffic management and explore innovative solutions to address the challenges posed by climate change and evolving transportation technologies. By fostering collaboration among international platforms and embracing cutting-edge approaches, ISFO seeks to pave the way for a sustainable and future-proofed traffic management system.


ESRIUM was among the projects featured in the two-day workshop marathon, along with AWARD and DIGEST projects. Each project participated in separate workshops, focusing on their unique areas of expertise. These workshops, conducted as part of the ISFO 2023 conference, facilitated in-depth discussions and knowledge-sharing among experts, further propelling the advancement of the field of traffic management. 


Got the chance to discuss lessons learnt of our ESRIUM project with an international expert group! Steven LatoskiChristoph Antony and Roland Spielhofer. The main question of the session was: “How to approach asset management intelligently considering all the possibilities and challenges these days?” For me a perfect match to our project goals and results as we investigated an AI-based low-cost very fast road surface sensing system to support road maintenance and traffic management purposes with #C-ITS messages. Thanks to Sandra Ulrich for perfectly organising and moderating this session!
