Oxfordshire County Council aims to reduce traffic congestion using real-time data

18 July 2022/Categories: CILT, Active Travel & Travel Planning, Transport Planning, Net-Zero

Oxfordshire County Council’s Research & Innovation team, iHub, and Alchera Data Technologies has announced the successful completion of Phase 2 of its new mobility project.

The project is designed to reduce traffic congestion and pollution by using real-time data insights.

Oxfordshire has included self-driving vehicles in its Local Transport Plan and sees harnessing technology and data which will aim to build a better transport system for local residents. 

£3.5m has gone towards ground-breaking projects to drive forward the development of hi-tech vehicles and the intelligent infrastructure to support them.

Alchera's AI-powered, cloud-based software platform provides real-time data on the movement of vehicles and pedestrians around cities and major infrastructure by machine learning algorithms making use of existing city sensors and camera networks to deliver real-time data unmatched in its granularity - and allowing operators to develop new dynamic & smart city offerings.


Ruth Anderson, Future of Mobility Team Leader at OCC’s iHub, said:

“Finding a way to ensure all of Oxfordshire’s transport systems have access to the same data on which to make real-time decisions is critical. We can’t possibly hope to build intelligent infrastructure if all the systems are using different data. Alchera’s data hub, Alpha, gives us the ability to coordinate all our transport systems’ data needs, ensuring consistent analysis across the board both in real-time and historically to understand the impact of decisions."


Laura Peacock, Innovation Hub Manager at Oxfordshire County Council, said:

"The inclusion of accurate, real-time mobility data will become increasingly important in the operation of advanced transport systems of the future. It’s great to see companies like Alchera bringing exciting new technologies that will change the game; their approach has huge potential. We should expect to see some disruptive dynamic business models emerge off the back of this."
