Putting the User Back into Transport Innovation – Use Cases for Data provided an opportunity for tech and transport industry actors to explore user-focused opportunities for innovation.
In November 2017, techUK hosted a workshop with Intelligent Transport Systems UK (ITS UK) to bring together the transport and technology industries to explore opportunities to better innovate for the future, with a particular focus on user challenges.
Attendees included Catapults, tech suppliers, transport providers and delivery agencies.
Challenges and opportunities were examined in themed workshops, including:
- Unlocking the value of transport data
- Skills availability in the UK workforce
- Opportunities for data in reducing maintenance costs
- Public transport investment
- Network management
The workshop fostered open discussion of organisational needs and objectives for incorporation of technology and data capabilities to better prepare British transport for the future.
