Developing effective management of our networks and systems.

Developing effective management of our networks and systems.

Our innovative research ranges from road user charging to traveller safety and security. We are one of the leading centres of transport technology research in Europe. We help to deliver and transform transport policy.

We are turning towards advances in technology to help us manage our networks and systems in a more efficient and effective manner. This will help us keep people and goods moving. It will make an invaluable contribution to making our economies and societies sustainable, both now and in the future.

A leading role in transport technology

As one of the leading centres of transport technology research in Europe, we play a pivotal role in areas such as:

  • road user charging
  • smartcards
  • electromobility
  • advanced traveller information services

Our research provides improvements in traveller safety and security. We have renowned expertise in developing assistive technologies for older and disabled travellers.

New technologies for transport policy

We are at the forefront of the development of new technologies to help deliver and transform transport policy. We are innovative in our use of new technologies. We identify fundamental technical gaps and propose novel solutions. We provide demonstrations (laboratory and field-trials) of emerging systems.

We carry out proof-of-concept studies and technical and user evaluations of future systems.
