A look back at success from MOVE 2021

A look back at success from MOVE 2021

With the fourth MOVE event at ExCeL in London only just over a month away (15/16 June), it’s a timely moment to reflect upon how MOVE has networked thousands of budding mobility leaders across the entire value ecosystem to facilitate partnerships and challenge transport industry practices.

As the event expands many more perfect business partners are being matched, bringing outstanding sustainable solutions to provision across future fuels, energy charging, autonomous vehicles and different transport modes.

Since MOVE 2021, a powerful testimony that has come to light is by Founder of Powered by Hydrogen, Sashe Annett, whose meeting with Technology and Digital Strategist at Ricardo plc, Rushab Shah sparked a successful collaboration that continues to evolve and combine both their passion projects in hydrogen buses.

This is truly an example of a working ‘perfect match’ partnership which will be replicated again at this year’s MOVE 2022 on 15th and 16th June. Register here

Describing their positive encounter at MOVE, Sashe begins: “Part of our mission at Powered by Hydrogen is to accelerate the adoption of hydrogen technologies across the transportation sector by initiating scaleable demonstration projects.

“I was already working on a pilot hydrogen bus project when I attended MOVE 2021 last November.

“At the MOVE networking event, we met Rushab Shah, a representative from Ricardo, a global environmental, engineering and strategic consulting company headquartered in the UK. Ricardo is working on a repowering solution that coverts a diesel buses to hydrogen fuel cell buses at nearly half the cost while saving around 45,000 kg of embedded carbon relative to a new fuel cell bus. It ended up being a perfect match…”

Together they have gone on to work closely to create a meaningful ripple through the alternative fuels market.

She continues: “We have since forged a partnership with Ricardo’s UK and US commercial and hydrogen departments and are exploring further collaborations across transit authorities, academia and suppliers.”

Powered By Hydrogen is a US based non-profit organisation advancing hydrogen technology through education and legislative advocacy, which since it founded, has achieved significant visibility through the MOVE event.

A world-class environmental, engineering and strategic consulting company, Ricardo plc provides exceptional levels of expertise in delivering leading-edge and innovative cross-sector sustainable products and solutions, helping their global customers increase efficiencies, achieve growth and create a cleaner and safer future.

Their united mission is clear – to create a safe and sustainable world.

Autonomous bus shuttle on trial at Highways UK

Autonomous bus shuttle on trial at Highways UK

Visitors to Highways UK – a sister event to MOVE, taking place in Birmingham next week, will be among the first to have the opportunity to ride a trial autonomous bus shuttle service running at the NEC, England’s National Exhibition Centre.

Local municipality Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council is working with the NEC on the pilot autonomous shuttle service to gain a better understanding of the technology, its application and how the technology might be used in the future.

Visitors to Highways UK can pre-book their free ride to experience one of the first fully self-driving shuttles in the UK. Additionally, there will be a “hop on” service running for the duration of the event and Solihull’s Head of CCAV will be on hand at the NEC on 4 November. The route starts at the Piazza bus stop by Hall 5 and runs down Pendigo Way to Resorts World. If you are visiting Highways UK, your walking route from the train station (and airport) take you very close to the departure point. The round trip takes less than 20 minutes, so a small detour for an amazing conversation point.

Safety supervisors will be on board the vehicle during the project trials and are able to regain manual control of the vehicle immediately at any time if required. The fully electric vehicles will run at a maximum of 20mph.

The trials will support research into potential driverless shuttle services and further explore how smart technology could be used to cut congestion and improve public transport.

For more information on the autonomous trials and the vehicles themselves, please visit www.solihull.gov.uk/CAVtrials

Analysis reveals cheapest cities to hire e-bikes

Analysis reveals cheapest cities to hire e-bikes

A new report reveals The Hague in the Netherlands to offer the cheapest e-bike daily rental. The report from personal finance experts money.co.uk shows there is significant variation in daily rental rates even within the same country. In nearby Amsterdam, for instance, the daily charge is nearly ten times greater than in The Hague, suggests the research.

The Cycle Cities report compared 40 global cities and in terms of e-bike rental costs, the best value cities are:

  1. The Hague, Netherlands (£2.56 daily hire charge)
  2. Madison, United States (£10.78/day)
  3. Brisbane, Australia (£12.20/day)
  4. Cluj-Napoca, Romania (£15.65/day)
  5. Prague, Czech Republic (£16.76/day)

  8. Vienna, Austria (£19.59/day)
  9. Valencia, Spain (£21.29/day)
  10. Amsterdam, Netherlands (£21.46/day)

 

The report also presents a Cycle-Friendly Index, which allows for cycling laws, the number of mapped bike paths per resident, pollution levels, topography and average annual temperatures/rainfall levels.

From this assessment, money.co.uk rates the world’s ten most friendly bike cities (ranked on a maximum possible score of 280) to be:

  1. Copenhagen, Denmark (216)
  2. Tallinn, Estonia (210)
  3. Amsterdam, Netherlands (209)
  4. Helsinki, Finland (201)
  5. Tel Aviv, Israel (192)

Event preview: Transport’s 5G future – from smart railways to autonomous vehicles

Event preview: Transport’s 5G future – from smart railways to autonomous vehicles

Over the last year, 5G mobile technology has been rolled out in markets around the world. Offering data speeds up to 100-times faster than 4G and ultra-low latency, the new technology is potentially transformative, allowing subscribers to download 4K videos in seconds or interact with one another seamlessly in virtual reality.

However, 5G’s real impact goes far beyond novel consumer experiences and higher quality communication. In fact, the biggest value from 5G will not be realised by mobile subscribers, but by enterprises, who will use its high bandwidth and low latency to unlock yet more technologies, from machine learning and artificial intelligence to automation and the Internet of Things (IoT).

But what impact could 5G have on the transportation industry?

Perhaps the most exciting and high-profile use cases in this space are related to autonomous vehicles. Self-driving cars will need to communicate with one another and make automated decisions about its environment almost instantaneously when on the road, with 5G crucial in delivering the required ubiquitous connectivity.

But while autonomous vehicle technology is still very much in its infancy, there are many more transport applications for 5G that are far more within reach. From IoT sensors that can be deployed on railway lines to monitor the track, to smart motorways that can update drivers about traffic congestion in real time, the opportunities are growing as the transport and telecommunications spheres increasingly converge.

In a session called ‘Trains, Planes & Automobiles: 5G-enhanced mobility’ at this year’s inaugural, virtual 5GLive, event, a panel of experts will discuss the process of digitising urban transport systems, explore 5G transport use cases, and highlight the key challenges related to upgrading and expanding mobility systems. 5G Live is organised by Terrapinn and a sister event to MOVE.

FEATURED SESSION: Trains, Planes & Automobiles: 5G-enhanced mobility

18 May, 14:20 BST

Speakers:

Roland da Silva, Independent Strategy Advisor (Moderator)

Johannes Springer, Lead 5G Automotive Program, T-Systems
