We are the UK association for the promotion of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS). We are a not-for-profit public/private sector association financed by members’ subscriptions, and provide a forum for all organisations concerned with ITS. We work to bring the benefits that ITS can offer in terms of economic efficiency, transport safety, and environmental benefits to the United Kingdom – and at the same time expand the ITS market. We are supporting the TravelSpirit project by:
Providing readily accessible opportunities for practitioners and stakeholders to meet on an equal footing to promote mutual understanding of Open Source code within ITS and to increase knowledge and awareness of Open Source best practice; and
Leading informed and balanced debate on how Open Source code can work for the ITS industry and influencing relevant policies.
The North West branch of the IET are active board members of the TravelSpirit™ consortium, and are financial sponsors of the launch event in MediaCity UK in May. They will also be providing facilitators for the event workshops and working with their members to explore ways in which participation with the TravelSpirit™ project can form part of their professional development.
