Inaugural TTF Forum
The inaugural Transport Technology Forum took place on 25 March 2019 in London.
There was a great turnout to hear about the launch of the new TTF, as the Department for Transport’s Anthony Ferguson and Darren Capes, together with Steve Gooding (Director, RAC Foundation) outlined the form the TTF will take, the activities and projects to be undertaken, and the opportunities for those involved in the roads technology community to participate and get involved in shaping its future. A massive thanks to everyone who attended and made the event a real success! It was great to get your valuable input on the day and there were a lot of welcome comments and challenges generated from the discussion, which will help shape the vision and direction of the TTF.
The Forum also heard from Tim Gammons, Arup’s Intelligent Mobility Leader, on Arup’s role with the TTF, and Ella Taylor, from the Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CCAV), on the Future of Mobility Urban Strategy and the opportunities this presents for the TTF community to develop new transport solutions and services.
The TTF has recently been relaunched, as a DfT-funded resource to be provided by Arup as our contractor. This puts the TTF on a firm footing for the future and allows us to start to expand the role it can play in serving the roads technology sector, acting as a conduit between Government, public authorities, suppliers and consultants and supporting knowledge and experience sharing and learning.
