Join ITS America and AAAE at the Intersection of Intelligent Transportation Systems and Aviation!
Airport land side management has increasingly become a focus for airport managers and transportation management center mangers alike. More and more, airport managers are turning to Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) to provide solutions to the challenges they face, such as managing parking, commercial vehicle movement, incident management, security and much more. This conference is co-sponsored by the American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE) and the Intelligent Transportation Society of America (ITS America) and will showcase the top industry leaders in the Intelligent Transport System (ITS) industry who are currently providing solutions for airport landside management. The conference will also feature airport personnel sharing real-world results, lessons learned, success stories bad reasons why they have chosen ITS products and services as their airport land side management solution.
Details of Sessions:
Tuesday, August 4, 2009
Keynote Address: Michael Huerta, President, MPH Consulting “Transportation Challenges Presented by the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, UT” – confirmed
“ITS Options in Airport Ground Traffic Management and Revenue Generation”
Moderator: Gary Duncan, Chief Technology Officer for Econolite (EGI) – confirmed
1. Dave Kinnecom, Utah DOT – confirmed
2. FAA –confirmed participation, speaker TBD
3. Stan Doepke, Eagle Integrated – confirmed
This session will focus on the challenges that airport landside managers face in effectively managing and tracking traffic flow in and out of the airport environment. Discussion topics will include freeway and arterial signage, real time travel information, and other traffic management tools. In addition to managing the traffic flow, airport managers have significant fiscal responsibility and this session will address those responsibilities and provide real examples of using dwell times, trip charges and airport usage fees from taxis and shuttles to provide a revenue stream for airport operations.
“ITS Options in Airport Ground Incident Management”
Moderator: Irv Rosenblum, Telegra – confirmed
1. Dan Lukasik, Delcan – confirmed
2.Dave Korzep, Salt Lake City Department of Airports –confirmed
3. Ron Sherwood, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport – confirmed
This session will focus on the use of technologies to help airports managers address security issues related to curbside management of transportation taxis, limousines and buses. Additionally, panelists will address management of vehicle accidents on airport property, management of pedestrian flow, park and wait lots, and other security challenges.
“ITS Solutions to Airport Parking Conundrums”
Moderator: Mike Drow, Standard Parking – confirmed
1. Rick Warner, President of ParkingCarma – confirmed
2. Michael Howarth, Intelligent Devices – confirmed
3. Neal Heaton, BWI – confirmed
4. Jon Tarleton, Quixote – confirmed
Passenger parking is the largest source of revenue for most airports and proper management is of increasing importance. The session will focus on ITS products and services and how they relate to “Parking Guidance Systems,” “Parking Reservation Systems,” and “Vehicle Locator Systems.” Intelligent Transportation System technologies are now being used in some locations to take the guess work out of finding open parking lots and spaces, pick up points and drop off points for specific airlines. Discover some of the leading edge technology implementations that are working at airports today.
“Importance of ITS Standards in ITS Implementation at Airports”
Moderator: Casey Crabtree, Daktronics – confirmed
1. Rod MacKenzie, ITS America – confirmed
2. Bob Rausch, TransCore –confirmed
3. Marshall Elizer, Gresham Smith & Partners – confirmed
4. Tom Wunk, Sheidt & Bachmann – confirmed
ITS standards define an architecture of interrelated systems that work together to deliver advanced transportation technology and services across different agencies, modes and users. Most standards arevoluntary, consensus-based, and open, meaning that their use is not mandated by law, they are consensus-based (meaning that a published standard has attained general agreement through cooperation and compromise in a process that is inclusive of all interested parties), and they are not proprietary and are available for anyone to use. The use of standards for airport ITS encourages growth of these services by minimizing development costs, increasing compatibility and interoperability, and increasing buyer and seller confidence in products. A standards-based approach to airport ITS integration helps to facilitate the exchange of transportation data as well as more easily accommodate future equipment replacements, systems upgrades, and system expansions. This session will explore standards available to ITS applications in the airport environment and how they are being used in airport ITS systems development today.
