Moreover, advances in transport technology will improve quality of life, sustainability and deliver enhanced economic opportunities. This talk will explore the digital policies and technologies underpinning future mobility components such as connected and automated driving, electrification and alternative fuels, public transport options, and the support of Smart City objectives. The aim of this talk is to provide a clear picture of what is required to deliver the data infrastructure to support the intelligent transport systems of the future.
