Automotive Council report: Intelligent Mobility - A National Need?

A new Automotive Council report out last week (download it here) calls for integrated use of existing technology to improve our transport networks. Congestion, road accidents and a growing population are all putting a strain on the UK’s transport networks, creating a costly and ineffective transport system that also impacts on economic productivity.

The report explores the role of Intelligent Mobility and the importance of collaboration between government, infrastructure providers, technologists and the automotive sector. It has been produced by the Automotive Council to develop an alternative to legislation or building more roads, to promote innovation and is a precursor to the Automotive Council-led Summit on Intelligent Mobility which will be held in April 2012.
