iRAP Global Technical Director James Bradford will be at the Transportation Research Board (TRB) 103rd Annual Meeting next week in Washington DC, sharing iRAP insights and partner activity, and collaborating with leading US and international agencies for safer roads worldwide.
To be held from 7-11 January, the meeting attracts around 13,000 transportation professionals and 200 exhibits each year and provides a great opportunity to learn and share latest research and technologies, and network with industry experts. The program covers all transportation modes, with sessions and workshops addressing topics of interest to policy makers, administrators, practitioners, researchers, and representatives of government, industry, and academic institutions.
James will be presenting in the Analysis of International Road Safety Data Session on Monday from 1.30 – 3.15pm.
The session will bring together road safety data and analysis experts to discuss the latest trends in national road safety performance and methodologies for assessing performance. The latest US data will be presented by NHTSA and the latest results of benchmarking national performance internationally will be discussed by authors of the International Transport Forum’s Annual Road Safety Report and the UN WHO Global Road Safety Status report.
James will share insights from Vietnam for global benefit, presenting the innovative Ai&Me Road Safety and Big Data for Youth Voices Project and new Google-org funded AI for Global Goals Project. iRAP is one of just 15 projects receiving USD$2 million in grant funding and additional support from Google’s philanthropic arm to provide children with a safer journey to school leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI), iRAP’s Star Rating for Schools and AiRAP partnerships.
