The Transport Systems Catapult (TSC) will hold its third annual ‘Imagine’ Festival in June.
TSC says the festival is ‘a unique event bringing together leading minds from UK industry, research and government to uncover the future of transportation’.
The theme of this year’s festival will be Intelligent Mobility – the future of transport today and tomorrow. The event is cross modal, looking at road, air, rail and maritime - as well as going beyond to new mobility solutions like driverless vehicles, ride sharing apps and virtual mobility.
Key areas being explored include cyber resilience, automated transport, driving UK Intelligent Mobility across the globe, and inward investment and export opportunities for UK business.
TSC says the festival exhibition will allow attendees to get to grips with innovative and emerging technologies. The festival will also play host to the IMCreate2 Intelligent Mobility Hackathon showcase.
TSC is hosting the LUTZ Pathfinder driverless pod trials
The event will take place on the 14 and 15 June at TSC’s ‘Innovation Centre’ facility in Milton Keynes – which is currently hosting the LUTZ Pathfinder driverless pod trials.
Transport Systems Catapult CEO Steve Yianni said: ‘The Imagine festival is about new thinking. It’s about taking a fresh look at the issues facing the UK transport market, and the traditional ways in which they are addressed, and asking: Is there a better way? The result will be a vision of the future based on the principles of Intelligent Mobility – the smarter, greener, more efficient movement of people and goods.
‘We will help people to understand how that movement is evolving towards an integrated service and how people will travel in the future. This will transform the world around us. Put simply, the Imagine Festival is the place to be if you want to know what’s coming next in the world of transport.’
