Technology for the Safe System - New Webinar Series

26 April 2022

Data and connectivity are transforming our road transport system at an incredible pace, as connected vehicles and sensor technologies meet digital roads accessing faster and more efficient data networks. This is generating a wealth of exciting opportunities for technology to emerge as a major contributor to safety.

In July 2021 our Technology Think Tank led by of our director Nick Reed published a paper which illustrated how technology and connectivity could help turn the tide on stagnated safety performance, capitalising on the UK’s position as a global leader in road safety, connected and automated vehicles and associated technologies.

This year we are launching a series of expert led webinars looking to investigate the role that connected technology can play in delivering enhanced safety to road users. Explored through the lens of the Safe System, each session will focus on how the emergence of advanced communications and data connectivity are shaping a safer future in which transport systems, vehicles, road users, infrastructure and emergency response interact for better outcomes.

We are aiming to lift the lid on technologies that sometimes appear to be shrouded in mystery, described as black boxes or referred to with confusing acronyms. This series will bring together professionals from across the whole sector to see just how the latest generation of telecomms, sensors and analytics will allow us to collaborate to enhance the Safe System like never before.

Our expert panels will be gathered at test facilities and communications centres around the country to show you behind the scenes and discuss the applications for enhancing safety.

The first webinar ‘Connected Safety & Safe Road Infrastructure’ will be on 16th May at 2.00pm. To participate in the live online audience register now by clicking here.

The second webinar ‘Connected Safety & Post Crash Care’ will be on 30th May at 2.00pm. To participate in the live online audience register now by clicking here.
