The JCT Symposium & Exhibition started in 1996 as a way to bring traffic signal practitioners together with manufacturers and to maintain a sense of community amongst signals engineers. It is intended to run as an affordable conference that is accessible to as many people as possible, regardless of experience and that encourages the exchange of both knowledge and experience. Over the past few years, the symposium has consolidated its position as the UK's best conference event for traffic signals.

The ability of Multi-tenant hosted systems to allow flexible sharing, monitoring and control of ITS Assets to the benefit the travelling public. Traditionally Local Authorities have their own systems in place and driving across boundaries often means that you can drive from one area to another with little direct sharing of data. What we’re providing in South Yorkshire is a platform which links together the Sheffield, Rotherham and Doncaster systems to provide a more seamless experience for the road user. The approach allows multiple LAs to be on a common system (which can also be hosted) with the information and assets being shared. If needed a traffic strategy or a VMS sign in one LA area could be controlled or influenced by data from an adjoining LA.

Exposing the significant amount of information that is available to support decisions, strategies and onward public dissemination. This presentation focuses on the availability of generic and open source data from the likes of Highways England and many others to feed traffic management systems and help to drive better decision making within ITS products and systems which in turn can improve the experience of the road user. It will highlight some of the data sources we use, the systems that ingest this data and the benefits this mix of information brings to the public.
