Seeing is Believing 2014 highlighted the latest developments and products which can help improve the safety of the highway network.
The event took place at Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground in Leicestershire last week (19-20 November 2014).
It featured live demonstrations of self-driving cars, TRL (Transport Research Laboratory) on board as test partners for the event, the UK’s first demonstration of INROADS active road studs, ‘zero carriageway crossing’ demonstrations by the Traffic Management Contractors Association (TMCA), and smart motorway and Dutch-style roundabouts on the MiniDigiSim.
Exhibitors demonstrated products and services outside on real road environments – urban, rural and motorway – with day, dusk and night-time conditions.
Event director Neil Levett said: “This year’s Seeing is Believing had something for everyone and we are pleased with the feedback we have received from both exhibitors and delegates alike. As Europe’s only event for indoor showcasing of highway products as well as outdoor demonstrations and testing in all lighting conditions it continues to grow year-on-year. We’re already working towards the next show in 2016.”
Seeing is Believing 2016 will take place on 9-10 November 2016.
