Here is a summary of the second day of the conference TRA2016 (Tuesday 19th April). The plenary session was dedicated to the automation of transport, which was covered during both the strategic and technical sessions. Automation is one of the factors that significantly contribute to improving the quality and increasing the safety of transport. During the other sessions, the modes of transport, bicycle transport, railway infrastructure, logistics and maritime transport were discussed. One of the highlights of the day was without doubt the workshop entitled “Working in transportation – Where are the woman?”
All throughout the day, an exhibition of scientific posters and posters took place as part of TRA Marketplace, which raised considerable interest among the participants. The day ended with a gala dinner held at the Fortress restaurant. Guests were greeted by Prof. Leszek Rafalski, who outlined the history of the place. Then Marek Cywiński, CEO of strategic partner TRA2016 – Kapsch, gave a speech.
