£5M to be invested in adapting and developing technology to help people make smarter travel choices.

The Technology Strategy Board is to invest nearly £5 million in 12 new research and development projects aimed at providing reliable, accurate, and credible information for people to manage their journeys.  The total value of the projects is £9.6 million

Focusing on accelerating the deployment of Informed Personal Travel (IPT) information, the projects will look at how to provide innovative real-time information that effectively informs about the journey, both in the planning stage and once it is underway should disruption occur.  By adapting existing technology, and developing cutting edge innovation, the research and development projects will help to find the best ways for people to access and use reliable, accurate and credible information to plan their journeys.
