The Ecosystem supports the major challenges in Transport to deliver decarbonisation and more efficient operation and seamless personal travel. It brings together companies, research organisations, government and investors to stimulate rapid & cost effective new product and service development to the market. The aim is to create a Transport service and infrastructure which is the public’s first rather than last choice of travel.
The Ecosystem has two key strands supporting SMEs and Transport operators developing products across all Transport sectors using connectivity, AI and sensor technologies. Access to the West Midlands live Transport services and alignment with major testbeds across the UK provides an ideal environment for proving and scaling products prior to market launch.
