Mobility and transport

As the world increases its population, getting from place to place becomes more challenging if we do not find new ways to do move around.

This theme will focus on how to improve mobility for all whilst working towards zero emissions and minimal impact on the environment. It will also address how we can meet the future demand.

There are so many questions to answer and attitudes to change such as shifting mindsets from ownership to sharing.

There are transport systems in place, so how can these improve and be better integrated? How can the technologies used and data collected by Traffic Management Systems be better managed?

Finally, what are the gaps in knowledge and existing infrastructure/ operating systems that prevent us from making progress.


We are eager to work with people and organisations on research that fits this theme. Some possible research examples might be:

  • how to optimise the return on Advance Traffic Management Systems (ATMS)?
  • to what extent can people flow management through image processing technology help predict and manage congestion?
  • what technologies are most suitable to protect vulnerable road users from car and truck accidents and what is the path to mass deployment of these technologies?

If you have an idea for research and want to be a part of our network, contact us with your ideas.


We are able to undertake work for organisations and governments. Talk to us about how we can help you. Some examples include:

  • analysis of data and provision of reports to advise on planning public transport in fast growing cities
  • feasibility studies – for example, strategies to win more passengers for shared modes of transport
  • economic modelling – for example, what are the cost benefits of smart mobility for improved public transport linkages, walkability, multilevel parking and improved design of roads
