Navigating the Horizon: Unleashing the Potential of a Mobility Cluster

In an era defined by rapid technological advancements and evolving consumer demands, the concept of innovation clusters has emerged as a pivotal force shaping industries worldwide. Defined as geographic concentrations of interconnected companies, specialised suppliers, service providers, and associated institutions, clusters foster both competition and collaboration. Within this dynamic context, Ireland stands at a crossroads, poised to explore the vast possibilities of a Mobility Cluster.

This panel discussion aims to dissect the latent potential within the Irish mobility sector. As the nation continues to make strides in technology, sustainability, and transportation, the formation of a Mobility Cluster presents an exciting opportunity for Ireland to become a global leader in the field. Such a cluster would serve as a platform for industry players, research, and government entities, to synergise their efforts and drive growth within the sector.

Our panellists, including will delve into the intricacies of cluster development, exploring its potential impacts on Ireland’s mobility landscape. We’ll address key questions such as the role of innovation in cluster formation, the collaborative power of a geographically concentrated network, and how such a cluster could redefine Ireland’s position on the global mobility stage.

enhancing Motorway Operation Services & TII’s C-ITS Pilot

TII’s enhancing Motorway Operation Services (eMOS) programme of works has seen the upgrading of the Motorway Operation Control Centre, the development of a new Network Intelligence Management System and the deployment of over four hundred pieces of Intelligent Transport Systems equipment on the M50 which will allow TII to react real time to events on the network with a greater level of traffic control via variable speeds and red-X capabilities.

eMOS also encompasses TII’s C-Roads Ireland Cooperative-ITS (C-ITS) pilot. C-ITS Roadside Units deployed on the M50 and M1 will communicate directly with C-ITS On-Board Unit (OBU) equipped vehicles while outside of the M50 and M1 messages are sent to the OBUs via the cellular network. The cellular network will also be used to send messages to mobile app users.

The presentation will provide an overview of eMOS and an update of progress of the C-Roads Ireland C-ITS pilot.
