Traffex 2019 looks to the future of mobility

08/03/2019

A new feature at Traffex 2019 will take visitors through a virtual time machine visualised by partners Costain and Mott MacDonald.

The Future Mobility feature chimes with the main theme of this year’s event - How technology is driving change on the network.

Visitors will be able to explore different scenarios focusing on how transport networks and technologies might change in the future – of particular relevance for those responsible for designing, managing and constructing infrastructure.

On a journey from the past through the present and beyond, Future Mobility will consider what lies ahead for transport providers and users, including technological, legal, moral, social and economic impacts.

 

 

Richard Stuart, Costain’s highways sector director, said: ‘Costain’s purpose is to improve people’s lives with smart infrastructure solutions across the water, energy and transportation sectors, so we are delighted to be taking visitors to Traffex on a journey through the possibilities of Future Mobility.’

Alistair Gollop, Mott MacDonald’s technology services engineering lead, said: ‘We are delighted to co-curate the Future Mobility feature at Traffex 2019, because it encompasses the essence of what we do at Mott MacDonald – we open opportunities with connected thinking.’

Traffex director Adrian Tatum added: ‘We, Costain and Mott Macdonald are keen to engage with the wealth of suppliers who attend Traffex to see how their products could help on this journey as well as discuss with visitors the barriers they face on the road to autonomy.’

Active in the CAV sector, Costain and Mott MacDonald are currently collaborating with Highways England, Kent County Council and Transport for London (TfL) on the A2/M2 connected corridor, the flagship contract to design, install and implement one of the UK’s first pilot connected vehicle corridors on a live road.
