Bristol boasts an impressive history of delivering new technologies and innovative initiatives, in recent times pipping London to first place in Huawei’s UK Smart Cities Index. Two weeks ago today, at TRANSPORT Smart Class, South West England 2019, Nick Pates’ opening keynote on behalf of Bristol City Council explored how Smart City projects have helped deliver Bristol’s transport objectives to date and are assisting in tackling current local transport challenges. Nick initially explained why Bristol had embarked on its journey to become a “Smarter City”, highlighting lack of Connectivity as a key contributor to the city’s disparities and outlining how Bristol is Open is helping enable Smart City wide experiments and pilots to be undertaken and assessed with the intention to scale for the benefit of all. He then focused his presentation on how technology has been used through partnership working by taking an “Understand the Problem that Needs Solving” approach to better inform and realise efficiencies in the way Bristol delivers highway maintenance; including smart gully sensors, digital inspector, and technology driven condition surveys.
