After Greater London, the English county with the largest population is the West Midlands. Its seven metropolitan boroughs include the conurbations of Birmingham, Wolverhampton, and Coventry. It is in the latter that Mobileye, an Intel Company, is collaborating with Transport for West Midlands (TfWM) on a pilot project to digitise roadside assets and infrastructure.
TfWM does not itself run any public transport services, but rather it is responsible for co-ordinating them. In fact, its strategic remit extends beyond public transportation to also include freight and private transport in the West Midlands.
The pilot with Mobileye is part of TfWM’s wider strategy to leverage new technologies across the county in order to optimise maintenance of its highway apparatus and find savings for key stakeholders such as public utilities. Further down the line, the creation of datasets will lead to valuable insights into how to develop and roll out new mobility services.
