The audience were all senior officers within their respective Organisations. This group was selected as they directly influence transport policy and implementation on transport systems regionally, this will include C-ITS. The purpose of this training was to raise awareness at a senior level of the C-MobILE activities in Newcastle and the possibilities for further deployment opportunities across the wider geographic region.
The presentation was given in two parts, the first was regarding the relationship between Traffic Management and C-ITS and the second looking specifically at C-Mobile and how it relates to Newcastle. This was followed by a general Q&A session and informal discussion.
The presentation was well received. Sunderland and South Tyneside Officers are already engaged with the UK National Highways England looking at a C-ITS Project across their networks, looking at Freight movements between the Nissan car plant and the Port of Tyne.
