Immense win at Smart Cities UK

February 8th, 2019

Immense are delighted to announce that we won two awards at the Smart Cities UK conference.

Immense won the Smart Cities UK Transport Award for our project with England’s Economic Heartland (EEH) to develop a prototype policy decision support tool! We also won the Accelerator pitch session with a presentation by our Head of Infrastructure Solutions, Jof Ruxton.

The simulation platform we have developed for EEH demonstrates some of the fantastic capabilities we are developing here at Immense. We are changing the way simulation is done at the large scale, and we are making it accessible to those not proficient in transport modelling.

Martin Tugwell - EEH's Programme Director said: "Growth in our region is truly transformational in nature, requiring an approach which eschews the business as usual. Immense’s tool is just the sort of innovation that will help us realise our ambition to connect people and places with opportunities and services, realising the economic potential of the Heartland in the process. Wherever it has been demonstrated it has impressed people and got them thinking about its future uses – we’re excited about the possibilities it opens up to model many different policy scenarios."

For the Accelerator elevator session we shared further insights into our transportation simulation platform. Our Head of Infrastructure Solutions, Jof Ruxton pitched for Immense and showcased some of the collaborative projects we have worked on across the UK including working with Transport for West Midlands, Highways England and EEH. Our vision is that we will be able to share these tools with other regions around the country for improved planning and operation capability.

Thank you to all of those who worked with us on these projects. We look forward to continuing to work with our existing clients and engaging with new clients to offer our revolutionary service.
