Smarter Transport is really about mobility. Which is really about harnessing a number of trends (inside and outside transport) that are all converging. This convergence comes in the form of policy and regulatory shift, a desire for a more sustainable economic model, new behaviours and business models and the ongoing encroachment of pervasive technology adoption. Backed up by the engineering disciplines (civil, mechanical, electrical, IT) converging too. The common convergence thread though is data. Turning this data into knowledge and then to action is the smart bit.
