Data Science in Transport – Safety in Numbers


Data Science in Transport – Safety in Numbers

February 22, 2018

Recognising the important role Data Science has to play in the transport sector the Department for Transport is running a series of events for professionals showcasing work carried out in the sector.  This is very much an emerging are of interest, and one that Agilysis has already been investing in, and we were excited to present some of our work in analysing risk to cyclists as a part of today’s event.

Richard Owen showed the work we had undertaken using data from English local authorities which is then analysed to asses how risk changes as the number of people cycling regularly increases.

Other presentations on the day looked at risk junctions for cyclists, speed violations using app-data, the use of VR in modelling new street scenes, and a presentation from Google on using AI to detect vehicle types

Enforcement technologies – changing hearts and minds through a new Safe System lens

As we look to the future, the integration of connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs), mobility-as-a-service (MaaS), and novel enforcement technologies like passive alcohol detection and speed-limiting geofencing, highlight the ongoing need for strategic, systemic approaches to transport safety. Embracing behavioural measures and leveraging new technologies can further advance our goal of safe, sustainable, and equitable mobility for all.

Why do we need 20mph?

Explore the transformative impact of 20mph speed limits with insights from Wales and beyond. Recent data reveals a significant reduction in road casualties following the implementation of 20mph limits in Wales, underscoring their potential to enhance road safety. Agilysis's Traffic Insights report using connected vehicle data highlighted a 2.4mph reduction in average speeds. This aligns with the broader trend of adopting Vision Zero and Safe System methodologies, which prioritize human safety by setting speed limits that reduce fatality risks for pedestrians and cyclists. Discover how these changes are making roads safer and what further measures can be implemented for greater impact.
