TTF launches new Suppliers’ Directory at biggest ever annual conference

The Transport Technology Forum is launching a new online directory for the intelligent transport systems industry supply chain to detail their products and services.

The aim of the directory is to connect local authorities with technology suppliers who can support with the Green Light Funds, Traffic Signals Obsolescence Grant and Intelligent Traffic Management Fund project requirements, as well as broader local authority technology demands. The directory provides supply chain organisations with the opportunity to share information about their products and solutions, and includes space to add links to showcase previous case studies or projects. Organisations can add a listing prior to the page going live by clicking here.

69 difference local councils and combined authorities are attending the TTF Conference in person, with 32 more taking part virtually.  They will be joined in Leicestershire by representatives from key organisations such as National Highways, devolved governments, National Highways and Innovate UK.  Local authorities are able to attend for free, including having their hotel and catering costs covered, thanks to financial support from private sector organisations.

The event is sponsored by Clearview Intelligence, with the opening networking session sponsored by Yunex Traffic and the individual working group meetings on Tuesday 23 April supported by AECOM

The other exhibitors are (in alphabetical order): ATM, Brightly Software, Buchanan Computing, Cyclomedia, Highway Resource Solutions, HW Martin, Indra Sistemas, Mobius Networks, Monotch, NAL, PTV Group, Rennicks UK, RTEM, smartmicro UK, SRL Traffic Systems, StarTraq, Stocksigns/Messagemaker, SWARCO, TRL, TWM Traffic Control Systems, Trojan Energy, Vaisala, VivaCity and Westcotec.

Delegates attending on Tuesday for the TTF’s Working Group meetings will be able to try out the new National Parking Platform when they arrive at the venue, and can also experience in vehicle signing on their own Android and Apple smartphones.

This year’s Conference will feature a full day of discussion about the government’s £70 million funding of improvements to traffic signals which were announced as part of the Department for Transport’s Plan for Drivers by Secretary of State Mark Harper last October.  The winners of grants from the Traffic Signal Obsolescence Grant, (TSOG) and Green Light Fund (GLF) have been announced and their money distributed, and the Conference will hear about the process and initial lessons learned from traffic signals technology suppliers alongside client local authorities along with representatives of the Department for Transport. 

There will also be a session concentrating on procurement of projects from the £20 million Intelligent Traffic Management Fund (ITMF).  This money, expected to be delivered in packages worth around £2 million each, gives authorities the chance to deploy advanced technology for traffic signals, using emerging technologies to optimise traffic flow and balance traffic across city centres.  The conference will also hear updates around the National Parking Platform, Digital Traffic Regulation Orders, transport data and the implications of 2G/3G switch off while there will be case studies from local authorities and delegates will receive updates on the important work being carried out by the TTF Working Groups.
