  • Vast
  • Public and Private Sector
  • Vehicles, Infrastructure and Cities
  • Unlock and monetise your companies data
  • Buy data to support your business

About

ConVEx is a UK project involving central government, academia, private sector and local authority organisations to create a data exchange facility focused on mobility.

The project will create an open platform for the commercial exchange of data to enhance and accelerate the development of new mobility products and services.

The resulting facility will aggregate data from a diverse range of sources such as vehicles, infrastructure, traffic control centres, weather and more.

The build phase of the project is live and the facility will begin commercial operation in late 2020.

Project Examples

Vehicle Data

Synaptiv’s platform will act as a conduit for car data into the ConVEx system, collecting data either directly from vehicles or through partnerships with OEMs, then cleaning and normalising this data and making it available for the ConVEx facility.

Infrastructure

Valerann will demonstrate making real-time data from their award winning devices available through the ConVEx data platform and directly to CAVs, specifically in cases where low-latency is critical for traffic safety. They will also identify the use cases where low-latency data is of most use and build an extension of the data platform that allows for data sharing based on geographical location.

Simulation & Insight

City scale modelling and simulation of future transport scenarios based on data collected by the facility. This capability sits firmly within the expertise of our partners Immense, who will demonstrate the large scale simulation and analysis of tactical and strategic use cases using the best available mobility data from ConVEx showing how future scenarios could change mobility for a modelled region, like Birmingham, London, Paris, New York, Singapore or anywhere!
