Cardiff is Wales’ strongest economy and (in percentage terms) the fastest growing core city in the UK. Its population is expected to grow exponentially over the next 20 years which will put increased pressure on the city’s transport infrastructure as well as its natural environment. Cardiff believes that the use of smart technologies, with a strong focus on active travel, data-driven decision making and integrated transport will help the city manage the impacts of population growth in a more sustainable manner whilst ensuring that people can easily move around the city. Cardiff Council’s Transport Department has already completed many smart city initiatives and are currently involved in ambitious plans to create “smart corridors” within the city. Consequently, Cardiff will shortly release its “Smart City Roadmap” – a three year plan to improve collaboration, drive efficiencies and harness the power of technology and data across the city.
