Lunchtime Lecture - 'Global City Network: Smart Commuting Edition'

Future Cities Catapult welcomes Red Ninja for a lunchtime lecture highlighting our work on the visualisation of real time bus passenger movement in Belo Horizonte in Brazil.


Join Future Cities Catapult and learn how our partner Red Ninja’s iSensing solution enhanced and improved the end-to-end user journey experience of Belo Horizonte bus services.

This lunchtime lecture will include:

A showcase of the use of iSensing in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

  • An example of a collaborative way to approach the issue of overcrowding on buses and long wait times at bus stops, the two greatest issues impacting people’s daily commute.
  • A discussion surrounding the current mobility needs in South America and mobility challenges in the UK.

This will be followed by a live demonstration of the iSensing technology.
