To meet the demands of a growing population, limited natural resources and climate change, we need open, reliable and accessible data to be at the heart of our transport system.
Our transport system currently relies on largely physical infrastructure that has been slowly assembled over hundreds of years. But the system is struggling to support increasing demand for passenger journeys and the transportation of goods.
We urgently need to think about the data infrastructure needed to support transport innovation, and bring about the transition to ‘intelligent mobility’ – where emerging technologies enable the smarter, greener and more efficient movement of people and goods.
The ODI is working with Transport Systems Catapult to explore the data infrastructure and open standards that will support innovation and create a programme for employing open innovation in the transport sector.
We invite groups and individuals from the transport industry, academia and government to join us and define the data infrastructure needed to make intelligent mobility a UK success story.
