The Forum compliments the work undertaken by other organisations and ensures that work is not duplicated. For example, the Forum works with ITS (UK), who focus on the exchange of technology knowledge and ensure that there is a joined-up approach at a technical and tactical level. The Forum complements that by facilitating a more collaborative approach to innovation and the adoption of new technology, helping reduce risk and drive cost efficiencies.
The Forum works with the Transport Systems Catapult on the IM-PACT initiative, providing in-depth knowledge and technical expertise on the technology that supports the operation and management of transport networks.

All currently work together for mutual benefit on a pro bono basis. These include;
