New Technologies in Data Collection and AnalysisBOOK NOW
13/10/2021 09:00:00 - 13/10/2021 17:00:00

Mobile Network data and AI Vision Analytics are two of the newer data sources to the strategic planning and operational aspects of transportation projects.  They have varied benefits over existing traditional data collection sources due to their sample sizes, geographic extent, consistency, and the ability to request data in real-time or over defined time periods.  Transport operators and public sector organisations are using a variety of mobile network and big data sources to improve their operational decision-making and provide a richer evidence-base for their strategic decision-making.


This course provides an introduction into how these, and other new and emerging datasets are collected, analysed, and used in the transportation industry.
  Alongside this, the course will provide a summary of use cases and highlight the benefits and limitations of each data source.

This course has been developed for transport professionals involved in strategic planning, incident management & planning and operational planning wishing to develop their knowledge and proficiency, ranging from private sector and public sector organisations.

Sustainability versus Inclusion: Squaring the CircleBOOK NOW
19/10/2021 18:00:00 - 19/10/2021 20:00:00
Join us for this exciting event in the lead up to Transport Planning Day 2021!

About this event

The drive towards creating more sustainable cities, with fewer cars and less pollution is a movement we can all embrace. But for many disabled and older people (including those with low vision or mobility difficulties) recent policies and changing priorities have meant more anxiety and fewer opportunities for independent mobility.

Among the topics which potentially bring the two agendas into conflict are:

• Low Traffic Neighbourhoods

• Electric Scooters

• Electric vehicle charging points

• Cyclist and pedestrian priorities

• Removal of Blue Badge parking spaces.

This webinar – run jointly by the Transport Planning Society (TPS) and the Access & Inclusion Forum of the Chartered Institute for Logistics and Transport (CILT) - will explore how these potential conflicts can be avoided and how inclusive and sustainable policies and practices can address both agendas.

Three speakers who are leading experts in the field will each make their introductory remarks before joining a debate on the issues with fellow speakers and webinar participants.

Speakers:

Pedro Homem de Gouveia - Senior Policy and Project Manager at POLIS based in Brussels.

Susan Claris - Associate Director at Arup and Vice President of Living Streets

Joanna Ward - Freelance Transport Planner focussing on active and sustainable modes and a member of the Transport Planning Society Board

We look forward to seeing you there!

Technical Report Writing - OnlineBOOK NOW
21/06/2022 09:00:00 - 21/06/2022 17:00:00

Taking into account the latest Government recommendations regarding social distancing and working from home regarding the COVID-19 outbreak, we have made the decision in conjunction with the trainers that this course will now be delivered via distance learning. The course will still have all the course work, workshops and interactivity as those delivered in the classroom, allowing for the same level of learning while taking into account the recommendations for these special circumstances. There will be a live trainer facilitating this course from 9:00 - 17:00 GMT.

Many professionals lack confidence in their report-writing skills, and feel that their credibility suffers because their written reports are not a fair reflection of their expertise. Anyone involved in technical work will quickly discover the challenges presented when trying to communicate their ideas, information, proposals or recommendations to colleagues and clients. All too often, the impact of many hours of work can hinge on the ability to explain the results effectively to others.
