The Valtech team was delighted to co-host a webinar with the Department for Transport (DfT) that took a deep dive into the current state of play for connected and automated vehicles, and the vast potential of transport-related data for accelerating positive change.

Valtech’s Danny Pezic explains the current state of the transition to connected vehicles and highlights the vast amounts of computation, communication and data creation available. He details how their interaction with infrastructure, people, devices and other vehicles creates significant potential for improving transport policy and management, public transport, infrastructure, road safety and environmental impact.

Sarah Al-Adely from the DfT talks about the evolution of data platforms, data standards and data sets within the Department. Working to deliver on the Transport Data Strategy, Sarah outlines the current data sets and shares some of the use cases, highlighting the actions to connect systems and harmonise data standards so they can be linked and better used.

John Spanton from Valtech explores how good practice for data sharing between government, manufacturers, customers and society is crucial for the adoption of new technology and innovation. Using our work on the adoption of electric vehicles as an example, John also looks at some of the critical enablers – and blockers – and how data sharing plays a pivotal role in accelerating change.

Valtech’s Peter Ivanov talks about the development of Greenwave, a vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) service. Already operating in 70 cities worldwide, the service uses real-time traffic light data to manage the speed of connected vehicles so they can move through the city without stopping. It makes driving safer and reduces fuel consumption, delivering average energy savings of up to 14% with connected car drivers.

Host John Cooper, Senior Engineer for Digital Projects in Traffic & Technology at the DfT, also leads a Q&A and roundtable discussion about how data and innovation may shape the future of transport and connected and automated vehicles.
