How can infrastructure and policy decision-making related to the movement of goods and people be better support by cutting edge simulation?

Immense Simulations have been commissioned by England's Economic Heartland to develop an easy-to-use simulation tool to support such decision-making and explore implications of new proposals across the area. Immense's cloud-hosted 'Simulation as a Service' platform will empower EEH partners to ask their own 'what-if' questions and explore the impacts of development proposals, infrastructure changes, and new mobility services on the transport network.

England's Economic Heartland is a Strategic Alliance of councils and local enterprise partnerships covering the Cambridge - Milton Keynes - Oxford arc and is currently characterized by inadequate options for travelling east to west across the area. The area is seen as a future growth corridor and gateway from London to the Midlands and beyond. Efficient operation of the transport system is however crucial to future economic prosperity in the area.



"We're excited to be working alongside England's Economic Heartland to deliver a ground breaking simulation of the region's mobility needs through to 2050. This virtual world, and the insight from our tools, will enable the EEH team to simulate different scenarios and evaluate the impact they will have in a zero-risk environment. By envisioning the future mobility needs across the region, EEH can make great decisions to the benefit of residents and businesses alike."
