Details

TRANSPORT Smart Classes show key buyer side stakeholders how they can deploy the latest digital technology-enabled solutions, data-driven strategies and best practices to tackle their transport sector challenges (e.g. around congestion, traffic flows, air pollution and emissions, noise, first and last mile mobility, customer experience, cost effectiveness, connecting transport networks, managing and maintaining assets & infrastructure) and deliver a transport system that will allow passengers to travel efficiently, safely and with minimal impact on the environment. Delegates include commissioning, procurement, trialling and partnering leads, senior influencers, strategic decision makers and planners from progressive city, borough, metropolitan, district and county councils; public and private transport operators/service providers; sub-regional transport bodies, combined authorities, integrated transport authorities and passenger transport executives; DfT and supporting national transport agencies; prime contractors etc. Core themes range from on-demand transport and MaaS applications, EVs and e-mobility, predictive traffic management, journey time monitoring, smart parking and enforcing CAZs and LEZs, to analysing people movements, new ways of visualising data, connected and autonomous vehicles, intelligent street lighting, real-time transport modelling, and smart ticketing and fare collection.

On October 9th we will be casting a spotlight over London and South East England, hosting our speakers discussions on how the latest digital innovations can help overcome the transport and mobility challenges faced by the capital, it’s hinterland, burgeoning smart city-regions of the South East and East Anglia (e.g. Greater Brighton, Cambridge, MK, Norwich, Oxford, Peterborough, Reading, Portsmouth, Southampton etc), and beyond. Delegates will hear from industry movers, shapers and disruptors during initial rapid-fire thought leadership presentations, before moving on to in-depth consultations with experts and peers during the roundtable discussions. In addition, this Smart Class will feature up to 3 keynote presentations from ITAs, PTEs, major transport operators, agencies or local/combined authorities giving real world insight into their collaborative initiatives, digital journeys and adoptions of emerging, transformative technologies. This half day interactive event is free to attend for bona fide delegates satisfying our registration criteria.

Speakers

“Transport Innovation in London” – Transport for London is the integrated transport body for the Capital responsible for moving people and goods around London. This opening keynote presentation from TfL’s Head of Commercial Innovation will focus on how TfL is working with market innovators who can work with the city to help deliver the outcomes of Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan’s, Transport Strategy: “At its heart is a bold aim for 80% of all trips in London to be made on foot, by cycle or using public transport by 2041” (Valerie Shawcross, Deputy Mayor of Transport). Rikesh will also discuss how corporates and large bodies, including TfL, are changing the way they work with innovators given the fast changes in technology.

“How to Effectively Manage and Enforce Clean Air and Low Emission Zones with Virtual Permits and Digital ANPR” – A recent UN pollution report found that air in 44 UK cities and towns is too dangerous to breathe and estimated over 40,000 premature deaths per year from road polluted air. Imperial and Videalert demonstrate that the move towards managing air quality needn’t be a giant leap into the unknown and can be achieved by simply utilising proven technologies in a way that will make a very real difference to the quality of life in our cities and towns.

“Journey Time Monitoring is Evolving – Find out how!” – Knowing what is happening on the road network, both locally and nationally, at any given moment is a constant challenge, as is understanding peak traffic flow or the performance of congestion reducing schemes. However, innovative changes to the way we can gather road user data for journey time monitoring mean road operators can now monitor their networks quickly and economically. This presentation from Clearview Intelligence, including case studies, will show how crowdsourced data is changing the way in which we monitor our roads, empowering road operators to manage live situations and improve the experience for road users.

- Richard King

“Bringing it all together: Hubbing our Mobility” – As we move deeper into climate crisis and miss our carbon targets, it is time to avail ourselves of all the help on offer. This presentation from CoMoUK’s Chief Executive explains why shared mobility provides part of the answer to how we move around more efficiently, and mobility hubs are part of the solution to physically bringing shared mobility, public transport and active travel into the close relationship we and they deserve.

- Richard Dilks

“AI for Accessibility” – The crest of the Tech4Good wave in the UK crashed on to the beach of this year’s London Tech Week, valued at £2.3 billion in 2018 with a turnover of £732million. Technology is merely a tool that will increasingly be used to tackle the most meaningful problems in our society. In this presentation, CityMaaS’ Co-founder and CEO will explain how combining this with user-centric design is key to successful products that can create positive social impact such as accessible travel – one of the major obstacles to independent lives. To tackle both online and real world location accessibility, we need to create a community that can help each other to overcome daily obstacles. CityMaaS is one of the UK’s leading start-ups in this ecosystem with the vision to provide personalised digital and travel experience using AI and crowd-sourced data.

“Enabling Sustainable Growth: Transport Innovation in Milton Keynes” – Milton Keynes is widely regarded as one of the most successful, and ambitious, new towns in the UK and continues to grow rapidly. However, with the population planned to double to 500,000 over the next 30 years, the reliance on the private car must come to an end. The council is working with partners on a range of initiatives to transform mobility in Milton Keynes and ensure the city remains quick, easy and safe to get around. This keynote presentation by MK’s Head of Transport (and Mobility Strategy lead) will explore the Council’s role in developing new data-led mobility solutions.

- Steve Hayes

“The Role of Smart Mobility in Delivering a Transport Strategy for the South East” – Transport for the South East is an emerging Sub National Transport Body. Their mission is to grow the South East’s economy by delivering a safe, sustainable, and integrated transport system that makes the area more productive and improves the quality of life for all residents, and protects and enhances its natural and built environment. This closing keynote from TfSE’s Transport Strategy Development lead will explore the potential role that smart mobility initiatives will play in helping TfSE to achieve this mission as part of their emerging transport strategy. Whilst smart mobility has the potential to offer travellers more choice, reduce congestion and emissions and make more efficient use of existing infrastructure, it also has the potential to exacerbate existing problems. The presentation will identify the issues that need to be addressed to ensure that smart mobility initiatives can be shaped in a way that will ensure TfSE’s mission is accomplished.
