The aim of this research programme is to investigate what transformational change automation will create for National Road Authorities (NRA’s). Specifically what new opportunities will automation produce and what core business changes are required to unlock these opportunities?
This research will focus on crosscutting automation up to 2040 that supports:-
1) Road safety
2) Traffic efficiency
4) Customer service
The call has three sub-themes:
A: How will automation change the core business of NRA’s?
B: What new options do NRAs have from digitalisation and automation?
C: Practical learnings for NRAs from test sites
