WILMINGTON, Del., May 09, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InterDigital, Inc. (NASDAQ:IDCC), a mobile technology research and development company, today announced two new commercial service customers of the oneTRANSPORT™ data marketplace. Local authorities Hertfordshire County Council and Buckinghamshire County Council will join an actively expanding ecosystem that currently includes Northamptonshire County Council, Oxfordshire County Council, Arup, WorldSensing and Traak Systems.
The oneTRANSPORT data marketplace makes real-time data from a myriad of closed, siloed systems available through an open, standards-based system with data licenses, enabling the creation of new data-driven digital transport solutions. This type of infrastructure for data can enable smaller cities and entire regions to benefit from Smart City concepts and solutions.
“Hertfordshire County Council Highways puts itself at the forefront of road technology developments. The adoption of the oneTRANSPORT data marketplace underscores this commitment,” said Derek Twigg, Client Lead, Hertfordshire County Council. “InterDigital has already demonstrated the oneTRANSPORT data marketplace’s effectiveness in managing real time events with the case study for our home football matches at Watford Football Club; we hope to use this learning and approach to managing future events and incidents on Hertfordshire’s road network.”
Hertfordshire County Council cited numerous reasons for adopting the oneTRANSPORT data marketplace that include the service’s ability to:
“Buckinghamshire County Council has been working with InterDigital for a number of years now to understand what we as a county can do with our previously unreleased data using the oneTRANSPORT platform,” said Mark Kemp, Director of Growth, Strategy and Highway Services, Buckinghamshire County Council. “We are happy to announce that we are continuing to support the data marketplace and will explore ways to better utilize our existing data sets whether this be internally or externally.”
Buckinghamshire County Council identified key benefits, including cost-effective data sharing, visibility of cross-boundary travel and dashboards that enable clear traffic management, among its reasons for adopting the oneTRANSPORT data marketplace. Furthermore, the open data marketplace provides a cost-effective way for local authorities to release their data to support innovation and the development of new intelligent mobility services to assist the traveling public.
“The value of intelligent transport and smart cities will only be unlocked when all transport operators, local authorities, transport agencies, and service providers work together. The oneTRANSPORT data marketplace aims to deliver this key objective,” said Jim Nolan, Executive Vice President, Products, InterDigital. “We’re delighted to add Buckinghamshire County Council and Hertfordshire County Council to this growing ecosystem that will unlock innovation, enable new intelligent mobility services and ultimately support economic growth across the U.K.”
Launched as a commercial service in the U.K. in February 2018, the oneTRANSPORT data marketplace is based off of the two-year oneTRANSPORT project, which brought together more than 300 different datasets, coordinated eleven public and private partners’ activities, and which has been recognized with 11 global awards.
