Transportation accounts for a significant portion of global carbon emissions, with the road transport sector being a major contributor. Transport-related emissions make up 16.2% of the global total, and road transport alone accounted for 11.9%. In the UK, transport contributes to 34% of the country's carbon emissions.

These alarming statistics highlight the need for immediate action to curb emissions and adopt sustainable practices in the transportation industry.

“Smart City” is a term used to describe an urban area that utilise technology to both improve existing services, and to solve new and emerging issues that Urban Living and Urban Growth present. The world is an increasingly urbanised place. The United Nations state that in 2018 55% of the world’s population lived in urbanised areas, with growth projected to see this increase to around 68% by 2050. Managing this growth and the required extension of services and resources to accommodate it is a huge challenge for local and national governments across the world.
