LCV2015 Seminar Programme

Following the success of LCV2015 seminars the presentations will be uploaded by Wednesday 17th of September.

This year’s LCV seminar programme has been designed with two aims in mind. The first aim is to focus on showcasing the best of ‘Here and Now’ in terms of the latest technology developments and results from research projects. The second aim is to look at the future direction for the low carbon vehicle community to ask and hopefully answer the question of ‘What Next?’ for technology developments and innovation support.

Traveller Needs – A unique exploration of Traveller attitudes and opportunities to improve multi-modal travel

10th September – Main Plenary Hall – 12:20-13:10

The Traveller Needs survey and capability study has been a 6 month study funded by Innovate UK, Department for Transport and BIS and included a significant contribution from industry.

It has built on the National Transport Survey by undertaking a detailed survey of multi-modal travel across a UK representative demographic in order to establish key “Pain Points” experienced by travellers during their journeys. By utilising 10,000 on line surveys and over 100 detailed interviews with industry experts a rich source of data has resulted from which a clear picture of the issues facing travellers has emerged. From the data a detailed analysis of capability gaps has been undertaken with the aim of establishing opportunities for improvements in multi-modal travel. As expected travellers who utilise multi-modal travel options face significant issues when transitioning from one mode of transport to another and this issue increases as the number of different modes of transport used increases. It is also clear that the continued take up of smart phones and associated travel related applications offers considerable opportunities to tackle the “pain points” that have been highlighted. The formal release of the final report for Traveller Needs is set for October 2015 so this session will provide an initial view of the output of this rich source of data, we expect the data to be a critical input for a number of studies and projects related to improved multi-modal travel over the next 12 months.
