The ‘Barriers to Innovation for Smart Infrastructure in Transport’ conference, held by the Transport Systems Catapult focused on the barriers preventing the transport industry from becoming Smart.

It is reported that the Smart transport market alone could be worth more than £75 billion a year by 2018. However, barriers such as the interoperability of things, resilience of the new ecosystems and privacy and security matters must be overcome.

RedBite joined many experts from smart infrastructure manufacturers, enablers and service providers as well as experts from the transportation industry to examine the challenges and explore the possible solutions that will ensure the industry can progress from digital to Smart.

At RedBite, we are currently working on a development project with Costain as part of the HyperCat consortium to create standards and solutions that overcome the barriers faced by not only the transport industry, but all industries aspiring to be Smart.
