Published on

Presentation to audience at Department for Transport in January 2017 sharing the purpose, outcomes and next steps from the Birmingham Highways Data Challenge, or #brumdatahack. We're helping local SME's and universities access the right data and information to innovate and help solve the congestion, routing and co-ordination challenges facing the West Midlands in coming years with construction of HS2, extension of Midland Metro Alliance, Highways England works on Motorways and Trunk Roads, local authority highway improvements and utilities/services works.

  4. 4. Three organisations need help with their data challenges...
  5. 5. • Have live traffic flow and journey time data across Birmingham City council at 5 minute intervals, based on Urban Traffic Management and Control (UTMC) data, live car parking data and automatic detection of traffic incidents. • Want to publish openly, and build on work already done on open standards through European funded projects (Opticities, Open Transport Net). • Need to understand priorities for use and application of this data, to plan evolution of open source platform, and prioritise what data is published.
  6. 6. • Have access to public transport information, working in partnership with the public transport operators. • Want to understand impacts on the road network during incidents, scheduled maintenance and HS2 construction work. Use this to help encourage modal shift. • Need to bring together datasets to estimate journey time impacts to develop targeted communication to the network users.
  7. 7. • Have detailed plans of vehicle movements during the construction phase of HS2. • Want to understand what other public or private projects may impact the road network that HS2 must take account of, for example – tram extension, motorway upgrades. • Need to find out what data sets are useful to share to reach HS2’s goals and how the results can be presented visually.

  15. 15. Tom Forth’s Bus Tracker “In the future I'd like to run this service all day and night and in every major city of the UK. Buses are a big part of making our cities more pleasant and more productive places to live and work. We need to understand why people don't use them and change them so that they will.” http://www.tomforth.co.uk/bustracker/ SME’s improve their services

  18. 18. Do better next time • Engage with more universities and SME’s whose work / skills are complementary to the challenges faced • Provide much greater support to access, understand and use the available datasets. • Attract more people with coding/design/data skills from within the highways and transport sector.

  20. 20. • Take the data into universities, with a masterclass approach to help students connect with real life challenges, and identify skillsets (e.g. developers) to work with industry on future collaborations. • Create a regional hub for West Midlands data and open, collaborative working, where individuals and organisations (universities, SME’s, corporates, professional institutions) can learn skills in data visualisation, coding and analysis and collaborate to solve the region’s key transport challenges. • Prototype the basis for a national (UK wide) ongoing sustainable model for the exchange of highways data (HighwaysAPI), and establish foundations for its shared public / private / community not-for-profit management and direction.
