Speaker: Paul Welsh

Title: “Managing a city’s transportation systems”

Abstract: “I will outline how technology has developed from the earliest traffic signals through to the present day’s reliance on multiple and cross related computer systems. In doing so I will try to describe the problems of developing new technologies and systems over the last forty years. I will describe how our Motorways are now managed and for fun outline some of the latest developments that are in the pipeline for example `The autonomous vehicle’ which is the subject of much discussion on a closed `Linked In’ forum.”
