oneTRANSPORT in the News: Cities Monetizing IoT Data?

March 8, 2016 / Posted By: Patrick Van de Wille

The oneTRANSPORT initiative in the UK has been an enormous success, highlighting the tremendous role that breaking down data silos and exposing new sources of data can play in improving services for consumers… and driving revenue for public authorities.

It’s also been getting a lot of attention in the technology media. After an excellent article last week in ComputerWeekly, this time it’s Computer Business Review having a look at the project, with a very interesting angle: how cities and public authorities can use IoT technology (in this case, InterDigital’s oneMPOWER™ platform) to monetize their data at a time of ongoing public spending cutbacks. “Projects such as oneTRANSPORT show that councils have important assets already available that might help them ease the pain of spending cuts – and technology might be the way to unlock them,” says CBR’s Alex Sword. 

More information on oneTRANSPORT is available in the InterDigital Vault, at this link or by searching “oneTRANSPORT” in the search box.
