TTF Forum 2
Our second Transport Technology Forum took place on 11 July 2019 in Leeds. At the meeting over 40 delegates from across local authorities and industry met to discuss current TTF projects and develop the TTFs future work plan of activities.
The event was introduced and chaired by Steve Gooding (Director, RAC Foundation), the forum heard from the TTF project team who outlined current work promoting skills, training and technology opportunities. The session then focussed on two activities; a SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats) analysis of the current TTF and a second session focussed on the community’s opinions on the roles and research that TTF should (and shouldn’t) be conducting in the coming years. Both sessions provided valuable feedback and outputs which will now be worked into the TTFs action plan.
The event concluded with two spotlight sessions highlighting Smart Traffic Optimisation by Royal HaskoningDHV and risks of GPS interference and jamming on Critical Transport Infrastructure by Chronos Technology Ltd.
