The use of technology, public awareness, infrastructures, the correct road planning and government rules are topics which will be discussed in this conference as well as the new modeling and planning tools, which are used to design roads.
This conference is aimed at students, researchers, engineers, scholars from all universities worldwide as they are requested to submit their articles to discuss all topics related to transit and its environmental impacts.
At the end of the conference you will:
• Acquire knowledge about the new means of transportation from worldwide transport industries and also learn the successful case studies in automobile.
• Know more about green and sustainable transportation and its role.
• Know how traffic system can be enhanced by using means of plans and technological systems.
• Understand transportation planning trends, Transport modeling, and urban transport simulation.
• Construct sophisticated pedestrian roads.
• Learn how to take advantage of lands appropriately.
• Learn how to solve the pollution and climate change problems.
• Recognize environmental effects with different eco-friendly means of transport.
• Learn about Transport strategies, public transport systems, Transport Safety, and Security Infrastructure.
• Understand more about Transport policy and regulations, with intelligent transport systems.
• How to deal with Electronic mobility and urban space.
• Combine transport systems with green energy.
