See.Sense crowned at inaugural TRANStech Awards

See.Sense was amongst the winners of the first-ever TRANStech Awards, announced at a lunchtime ceremony at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London last Friday.

It was crowned winner of the Safety and Security Improvement category of the awards scheme devised to recognise the use of technology to improve transport.

Winners of the new awards, sponsored by Karhoo WSP, Innovate UK and CoMoUK, were selected from over 130 entries and ranged from names like Ford, Mercedes-Benz and Uber to local authorities and new technology start-ups.

Awards director Darryl Murdoch said: “We launched the TRANStech Awards to acknowledge and reward the trailblazing companies delivering innovative mobility solutions and are delighted by its success.

“Today we have truly celebrated breakthrough innovation, rewarded initiatives that positively impact the environment and customer experience, and recognised how the future of transport is being transformed by these inaugural awards have certainly captured the imagination of the mobility sector as witnessed by the extremely high quality of entries and the support for the ceremony itself.

“The TRANStech Awards are an important addition to the transport calendar and we will be back next year with an expanded awards scheme and event.”

Giles Bailey, CEO of the TravelSpirit Foundation, added: “Around the world, the adoption of digital technology has already transformed whole industries, with new marketplaces providing music and video on demand and new ‘open banking’ start-ups transforming personal finance.

“This Awards event has confirmed that transport is going to be the next industry to get turned inside out and transformed. We look forward to continuing to support the journey of TransTech and to help guide the emerging industry towards sustainable and equitable outcomes.”
