We’re helping to drive significant innovation across the West Midlands transport network through a range of 5G trials, including real-time parking availability, HD CCTV for the region’s tram network and utilising existing 5G infrastructure to count traffic.
Our pilot projects across both public transport and the region’s roads underlined the work we’re doing across all of our projects to unlock the potential of 5G.
Utilising this revolutionary technology for the transport network across the West Midlands will allow us to make public transport safer, make our roads less congested and offer a real-time tailored experience for road users.
While these pilot projects were early trials in using 5G to improve the experience of citizens travelling in the West Midlands, the results show the benefits a better-connected region can reap across its roads and on its public transport.
Some early results from these short-term trials include:
