05dec9:30 am3:00 pmData: Fuelling the Transport Technology Revolution

Event Details

Technology is set to have a significant impact on the future of transport. The emergence of data led service models (Mobility as a Service) and connected and autonomous vehicles will transform the transport landscape, creating new business models that will revolutionise the way we engage with our transport services.

Data will be a key enabler of this transformation. From fares to scheduling, traffic management to vehicle positioning, air quality to weather information, data will support more informed travel choices and allow more efficient use of our transport assets.

With data at the core of future mobility, questions must be asked about how it can best be used to support a more efficient and attractive transport network.

• How do we best use data to support transport services?

• How do we unlock the true value of data?

• Who owns the data and who can access it?

• Should it be standardised?

• What changes to legislation or regulation may be required?

• How do we keep it secure?

This workshop aims to explore these issues and others though discussions with a diverse range of stakeholders from within the transport, communications and data communities.


The event will incorporate a mix of presentations, panel discussions and round table workshops to explore opportunities and challenges around data use for mobility, culminating with the identification of priority areas for short term intervention and potential solutions.

In the afternoon there will be the option of staying on for an interactive session facilitated by IdealInterface where they will discuss their recent proposal for an Open Transport Standard.
