The increase of city population and climate change concern are calling for increase demand for public transportation, such as electric bus and rail lines.
Nowadays, rail networks are saturated at peak hours, due to train delays that accumulate over time, and therefore rail stakeholders are challenged to develop innovative solutions to meet the new challenges. In this talk, the strategy developed by Bombardier transportation to monitor and predict the performance of train assets is presented. The Bombardier strategy aims to use Smart data and AI approaches to increase the performance of rail assets and increase their sustainability
This presentation will give an introduction to road safety auditing. Content will cover some discussion on procedures in terms of aims and experiences, and will also incorporate examples of real issues that are commonly seen during road safety audits.
Richard Hernan, Principal Engineer at AECOM
This talk will explore the hype, present the reality and identify why these super computers on wheels can make a difference to our lives. It will also focus on the infrastructure required, the policies to be considered and the technologies that can enable a positive change in our transport network.
Dr. John McCarthy, Leader of Intelligent Mobility at Arup
Businesses are looking to digital technology to maximise improvements in operations, as the sector is evolving at a rapid pace. This webinar will look at the technology adoption cycle for businesses, the challenges they are likely to face and how to overcome them. It will also explore how to build on connectivity platforms to add value and provide evidence for where improvements can be made.
This will feature input from a renowned panel chaired by Paul Campion, CEO, TRL and including Nick Tyler CBE, the Chadwick Professor of Civil Engineering at UCL and representatives from Ernst & Young LLP (EY). We will hear from Kelly Demyan, a people consulting director and part of EY’s transport leadership team and Kiran Savjani a strategy consulting director in EY-Parthenon and part of EY’s Future of Mobility leadership team on how Technology and innovation moves you now and in the future.
By attending this event, you will hear the latest thinking and examples of how mobility is changing and what the future technologies are that we will use and how we can incorporate them in our future planning.
A transport themed quiz hosted by CIHT South West. The quiz will cover subjects related to innovation in transport and changes to how we use transport as a result of living through the pandemic. Separate levels of question with clues if you need them will be provided and hopefully, you’ll learn a thing or two along the way.
An interactive event to put your skills to the test!
Transport policy is at a crossroads. Whilst many of the more utopian visions of a CAV future have vehicle sharing at their heart, evidence suggests that most people are reluctant to share a small, unsupervised vehicle with strangers.
Join our cross-sector panel led by Nicola Laird, CIHT Scotland's Young Professionals Committee Chair as we discuss the issues and debate whether the future on transport planning should focus on shared or individual transport for the benefit of our towns and cities.
