The Innovation Director at Transport for West Midlands is hailing a new software solution its procured to accelerate the development of new mobility products and services.
Mike Waters has described the ConVEx facility, which create a national data exchange facility, as “critical” saying “transport, both traditional and under the banner of new mobility, will benefit heavily from the ConVEx facility.”
Chordant is creating the software platform to support development of self-driving vehicles, fleet operations, intelligent infrastructure and new freight and passenger services. It will also support transport planning and development by local, regional and national authorities.
TfWM says ConVEx will aggregate data from a diverse range of sources that are either publicly available or available under licence and enable organisations to build scalable transport solutions that rely on the dynamic, equitable exchange of data between transport infrastructure, vehicles, service providers and adjacent industries to realise the economic and societal benefits offered by future clean, connected, automated transport.
