oneTRANSPORT is an innovative Smart City initiative focused on addressing the challenges in transportation systems with Internet of Things (IoT) technology. Traak is proud to be a Founding Member of the oneTRANSPORT consortium which comprises leading European industry, academic and transport authority partners.
The project, oneTRANSPORT, is an integrated transport initiative targeted at transport authorities. Totalling approximately £3.5 million (with co-funding by the UK’s innovation agency, Innovate UK, provided as a result of a successful competition bid), the collaborative research and development initiative spans two years and lays the basis for smarter transport networks in the UK, as well as setting an example of the kind for transportation networks worldwide.
The oneTRANSPORT two-year commercially-focused project was proposed by a consortium that consists of eleven partners comprising Arup, Buckinghamshire County Council, Clearview Traffic Group, Hertfordshire County Council, Highways England, Imperial College London, Northamptonshire County Council, Oxfordshire County Council, Traak Systems, Worldsensing and InterDigital Europe.
The project aims to enable multimodal transport information to be published by data owners (e.g. transport authorities and new third parties) and accessed nationally by transport authorities, application developers and others. The goal of oneTRANSPORT is to deliver a superior travel experience as well as fuelling the exploration of new revenues for local authorities, in-journey travel optimization and added value services that travellers desire and ultimately improve the travel experience on a truly nationwide basis.
