Smart Urban Mobility Solutions Conference

Conference

The Smart Urban Mobility Solutions Conference is a two day, free-to-attend programme and will focus on all of the latest technology and products the industry has to offer.

On Day 1 the conference starts with a session ‘Transport in Scotland: the next 10 years’ masterminded by Transport Scotland, as they explain: “Transport is changing dramatically with the advent of new technologies, changing demand patterns and the challenges of addressing climate change. As the national transport agency, Transport Scotland is at the forefront of dealing with these challenges. How do we capture the nation’s vision for transport; what should our transport strategy be for the next period; and what will transport look like in 10 years’ time? And, as a key demand, what is transport’s role in supporting the wider economy.  

“This session will involve insights into Transport Scotland’s role; how we see our National Transport Strategy evolving; how we gear up to the next ‘great leap forward’ in transport technology; and how we meet Climate Change Plan commitments centred both on technology and behaviour change. This will be a highly interactive session, so bring your ideas and prepare to be heard!”

The next session will look at smart urban mobility through the eyes of smart cities before moving on to the highly topical world of connected and automated vehicles including input from the UK government’s Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles; and Robert Llewellyn of Fully Charged who will be filming in the show. Then on Day 2, recognising its links with All-Energy, attention will turn to 'Powering from renewables'; a second look at 'What Smart Cities are doing as far as infrastructure, smart technology, data, sensors and apps are concerned; and finally 'Keep charging on: fuelling the future - now!' which naturally includes buses, remembering that Aberdeen has Europe's largest fleet of hydrogen buses.

Additionally throughout Day 1 the Innovate UK Infrastructure Systems Innovation Showcase (11:00-17:30) will cover the energy, connected transport and urban living sectors.

Amongst the vehicle display there will be two very special cars designed and built by students from two Scottish universities – Strathclyde and the University of the West of Scotland. Both will be competing later in May in the Shell Eco-marathon Europe. They will be in the show on Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning.
