Our ambitious One City Plan, and council and regional strategies, present various opportunities to harness new ideas, tools, technologies and novel approaches to achieve the desired outcomes. Complex city challenges – such as public safety, the needs of older people and effective health and social care – will require collective talent, clever technologies and a committed focus to address the real problems that affect Bristol.
Our flag ship innovation project which is exploring smart technology with the community in Easton, Lawrence Hill and Ashley. A key theme of this project is reducing and better managing energy demand which contributes to decarbonising Bristol - a key city challenge.
Venturer - exploring driverless vehicles
Bristol partnered on the Venturer project. Find out more how we worked with partners, like the Bristol Robotics Laboratory, to test a range of driverless technologies.
We were part of the Flourish research and development project investigating the roll out of Connected & Autonomous Vehicles (CAVs) in the UK. The project included a wide range of business, academic, charity and public sector organisations including Age UK, Airbus and Bristol Robotics Laboratory. Flourish allowed the council to experience these cutting edge technologies first hand to help us consider the implications of their introduction.
