Lunchtime Talk with Mr Sam Li, Senior Innovation Officer at Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM)

 

 

 

On Wednesday 7th February, ITS Ireland hosted a Lunchtime Talk with Mr Sam Li, Senior Innovation Officer at Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM). Sam delivered a presentation on CityVerve (link here), the UK’s demonstrator for Internet of Things (IoT) and Smart Cities. Its aim is to build and deliver a smarter, more connected Manchester by pioneering the use of IoT technologies. Funded by Innovate UK, led by the City of Manchester and made up of partners including Cisco, MSP and FutureEverything, the CityVerve demonstrator will develop and implements 16 individual projects from transport through to healthcare.

 After his presentation, Sam kindly stayed on to have a chat about the projects being deployed by CityVerve  and what he sees coming down the track for the future of mobility. You can see some of our discussion in the video below/above.
