The oneTRANSPORT initiative was conceived in 2013 in response to a UK government call for innovative new solutions to tackle the challenges present in the UK transport sector that are preventing the advent of new Intelligent Mobility services. Field trials began in October 2015, supported by InnovateUK and led by a consortium comprising Local Authorities, transport industry experts, Internet of Things (IoT) technology providers, and thought leaders in big data and analytics.
