We are always excited to hear from SME’s and individuals who have unique and interesting solutions which could help improve transport. We are currently deepening the technical capability we have built over the last four years, to consolidate our reputation as a centre of excellence in Intelligent Mobility and deliver the programmes. The key enabling capabilities we are currently developing for the UK are:

Modelling and Visualisation to bring world leading capability of people, process and computational tools to develop and demonstrate IM innovations in virtual worlds

Human Centric Design to enhance and enable IM technology innovation by placing the user at the heart of design and development

Critical Systems Software Design to establish development, evaluation and validation methodologies and techniques for mission critical software systems

Integrated Information Platforms to provide storage, analysis and sharing of information and facilitating ubiquitous data fused from multiple sources

Operational Trials & Evaluation to advance a network of integrated cyber and physical assets that support end to end testing and evaluation.

Our primary focus is currently on delivering collaborative projects and large scale demonstrators. The TSC has an essential role to play in establishing and delivering these major programmes within collaborative ventures, potentially worth tens of millions of pounds, in mobility-as-a-service, autonomous vehicles and truly connected & smart infrastructure.

If you would like to get involved with these projects please register your interest here.

Through our research we have identified key market segments where UK businesses could have the most impact and should focus their efforts. These segments have informed our programme themes and the capabilities listed above. If you work in these areas we are particularly keen to hear from you:

• Autonomous vehicles
• Internet of Things (IoT) asset management
• Data management & analysis
• Data collection & communication platforms
• Intermodal smart ticketing
• Security, resilience, safety (incl. cyber security)
