Clean, connected and automated mobility

Improve the safety and efficiency of your transport infrastructure and reduce its carbon footprint

We provide intelligent transport systems to help make the UK’s roads safer, cleaner and easier to use. Solutions include variable message signs, CCTV cameras, video analytics and traffic control equipment.

Our connected and automated mobility experts will help you maximise the benefits of technology to road users. We’ll work with you to make our motorways safer, cleaner and easier to use now, for example, by directly communicating variable speed limits to connected vehicles supporting the intelligent speed assistance feature which is expected to reduce collisions by 30% and deaths by 20%[1]. We can also develop, test and deploy intelligent transport systems including variable message signs, CCTV cameras, video analytics and traffic control equipment to improve performance and efficiency, and help you extend the life of your assets. We’ll ensure any new solution works seamlessly with your existing systems and processes and keep it up and running 24/7.

Key benefits 

  1. Improve efficiency by streamlining and automating important processes, rather than relying on manual data gathering and analysis.
  2. Improve safety by using technology such as video analytics to detect vehicles that have stopped on the road, or debris that may cause an accident.
  3. Use simulation to understand how systems behave so you can optimise them in the virtual world before investing in new technology or infrastructure.
  4. Invest with confidence and prioritise spending after we’ve worked with you to develop a clear strategy and roadmap.
  5. Manage your assets and control systems remotely using the advanced technology.
