Centre for Future Transport and Cities

Organisation profile

Profile Information

Our research in future transport and cities is at the forefront of mobility innovation in a rapidly changing technology-enabled world. We see major disruption in the transport sector due to the imminent arrival of future technology such as connected and automated mobility. As a result of this, the way in which people, goods and services moves is changing dramatically and we are guiding that change.

Our truly multi-disciplinary teams develop knowledge through frontline, cutting-edge applied research enabled by strong internal and external networks. We use robust scientific methods coupled with innovative modelling and simulation techniques, to guide and develop solutions and inform policy on the next generation of transport, mobility and the environments in which they take place.

Everyone in society will benefit from this innovation in future mobility that will lead to safer roads, secure systems, cleaner cities and transform how people and goods move around in the UK and the wider world. We are proud to be part of that future.

We are undertaking research in the following areas:
