1. Carry out a meta-analysis of technologies that exist that could impact how transport is provided or used over the next 30 years.
2. List the organisations that carry out similar reviews of technologies.
A review of technologies (direct: eg electric vehicles, lightweight materials, etc, and indirect: smartphones, social media, etc) that have or could change the way things are done within the area of transport. All modes of transport are to be considered.
The work is likely to form the basis for an ongoing regular review of technology and is likely to be of interest to OGDs, LAs and other organisations that need to understand the landscape when it comes to technology and transport.
