Session 1 – The future of mobility: a transport revolution
10:05 AM – 10:25 AM
The Future of Transport and mobility
Innovate UK is part of UK Research and Innovation, a non-departmental public body funded by a grant-in-aid from the UK government. We drive productivity and economic growth by supporting businesses to develop and realise the potential of new ideas, including those from the UK’s world-class research base.
Karla will bring to life the likely changes to transport and mobility that government policy and technological development will bring. This is the future that the fleet sector needs to understand and adapt their businesses to in order to enable the evolution of integrated and efficient movement of people and goods.
CCAV is a DfT organisation tasked with driving transport innovation in the UK.
Iain will offer insight into the latest research projects, looking at how connected and autonomous vehicles will make road transport safer and more accessible to all and how the fleet sector will need to adapt in order to thrive in a connected future.
Head of Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles

Fragmentation, Siloisation & Monopolisation: The Future of Mobility?
Kit Allwinter (TfGM Intelligent Mobility Officer) will explore how Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) and the future of mobility in cities offers great opportunities but also a number of challenges. Talking about previous and ongoing trials in Greater Manchester, alongside their ambitions for the future, he will also outline lessons learned both there and around the world in making sure that the future of mobility doesn't fall prey to fragmentation, siloisation and monopolisation, but instead enables and provides a coherent and efficient solution to our growing mobility challenges. What are the roles of city authorities, app developers and mobility providers? How can we all work together to share data and insights and make cities better places?
