SmarterUK Transport Group

Given the increased pressure being placed on UK infrastructure, there is a need to rethink how we deliver transport across industrial, commercial and domestic sectors – this includes looking at both our roads and railways. Key to meeting this challenge is the application of technology to make transport networks more intelligent, flexible and efficient.

There are also opportunities to improve safety through combining the smart application and appropriate selection of technologies within passenger and good vehicles. Government has made a clear commitment to develop connected and autonomous vehicles (CAV), setting an ambition to become a world leader in the demonstration and deployment of CAV technologies through the creation of a new policy unit and over £200m of funding.

techUK will work to:

  • Ensure smart systems, technologies and solutions are an integral part of the UK’s future transport strategy, accelerating the development of the market for digitalisation.
  • Build a dialogue across the transport value chain, ensuring those engaged in the delivery of transport systems are aware of, and addressing technological challenges associated with privacy, security and interoperability.
  • Develop opportunities for techUK companies to provide expertise to the smart transport sector, particularly on cyber and connectivity.

 

The Group's work is directed by the Transport Steering Board. The Board is made up of nominated representatives of the Transport Group: 

Pinsent Masons, Natalie Trainor (CHAIR)
B Cubed, Neville Sankey
Deloitte, Warwick Goodall
FiveAI, Lucy Yu
Hitachi Rail EU, Lorna McDonald
Intel Corporation (UK) Ltd, Loubna Wortley
