VRA welcomes Transport of London as new associated partner!
The participation of Transport for London will provide to the project a public sector and city perspective. Cities have an important role to play in delivering automation even at research stage. They can serve as test beds in real life scenarios being close to the challenges and complexities of real world automation.
Innovation plays a relevant role to provide opportunities to enable cities to engage openly with industry and move forward their services, not just solve problems. In particular, the work on benefits and end users is of big importance and has a special role since cities have the responsibility to spend tax payer’s money and they need to justify their investment on the back of robust business cases.
