Data challenge goes online

Easier access to more readily understandable data was one of the main challenges to Intelligent Mobility addressed at last month’s Imagine Festival. Now, the key discussions from that “Data Challenge” workshop have been published in a fittingly open manner.

The 28-page report summarises the main findings that came out of the workshop, which was held at the Transport Systems Catapult’s new Imovation Centre on 19 June and attended by more than 60 delegates from a wide variety of backgrounds, including academics, transport authority representatives and the private sector.

“The workshop followed on from an event we held last year purely for academics, with the intention this time of addressing the main data challenges confronting the many different groups who are working to achieve Intelligent Mobility,” said Transport System’s Catapult (TSC) Chief Technical Officer Paul Zanelli following the report’s publication on Tuesday.

“During the day, we were able to develop ten specific challenges within the overall data challenge, with the workshop participants then helping to formulate ways in which we might now look at overcoming these challenges.”

The report has already been shared with the delegates who attended the June event, with further input now welcome from anyone working actively with data in relation to smart transport solutions. The TSC team will then combine the outputs of the report with the feedback provided, with the aim of producing a draft roadmap for future activities which can be shared with the community be the end of September.
