In October 2016 the IET held a panel to discuss the technological challenges and opportunities for city authorities and network operators in designing and achieving an integrated transport system. The panel including representatives from Atkins, Highways England, City of York Council and Telefonica and it was Chaired by Professor Phil Blythe, the Chief Scientific Advisor at the Department for Transport. Below is a summary of the key points from the session.
In 2014 the IET and ITS (UK) produced their first Guide to Emerging Transport Technology. With technology changing at speed, we decided it was time for some updates to the Guide. The second version, launched in 2017, is bigger and better.
These case studies demonstrate how transport technology is being applied by local authorities. If you would like to submit a case study please get in touch.
Join the IET and ITS UK on the 9 May for a day that explores how current and emerging transport technology can help overcome the challenges in the implementation of cost-effective ITS solutions in local transport.
