IT in Transport & GIS

Transport sector

Traffic jams are of growing concern as we work to restrict the peak time bottle-necks through road tolling and congestion charging schemes. Technology for motorists and road watchers a like help to save journey times. Innovations such as satellite navigation systems and GPS technology assist road-users and the motoring organisations to pinpoint directions. Motor insurance companies use telematics technology to incentivise good driving. Sport and leisure apps and hardware use GPS systems for tracking walks, runs, mapping etc.

Technology opportunities arise far beyond the commuter or holiday maker sectors with engine management systems for Formula One teams, UAVs for military air forces, crop spraying and weather detection.
