SmartNE has won an InnovateUK funding competition to investigate the feasibility of creating a "Smart Town Manager". The project will investigate how the WAI2Go platform can be used to gather, consolidates and make use of diverse town centre datasets and use the
to help with the management and planning of town centres.
The project, which is funded through the InnovateUK "Reinventing the High Street" competition, is being carried out in collaboration with Colchester Borough Council and the University of Essex. A number of outcomes are expected to arise from the study. The principle one is that it will provide a truly innovative approach to joining up existing data/information systems such as tourist information, venues, public transport and car parking. This will lead to improved presentation of, and access to, a towns visitor information to improve the visitor experience which is expected to result in more repeat and recommended visits.
