What's on our Horizon Scanning Radar

Our Horizon Scanning Radar lists in its inner circle all the emerging technologies that we believe could constitute enablers for the delivery of the Rail Technical strategy (RTS). This list is, by nature and by construction, non-exhaustive: it is a living list, extended and updated on a ongoing basis with the new information that we find and the feedback that we receive.

The initial set of emerging technologies on our Radar was constituted from the technologies identified in RSSB’s own knowledge searches, technological developments indicated by RSSB’s Senior R&D meetings, and pre-existing lists compiled by external experts, such as the UK Cabinet office’s Technology and Innovation Futures (2012 and 2017), OECD’s megatrends (2016), MacKinsey Global Institute’s Disruptive technologies (2012), JRC’s Tools for Innovation Monitoring (current website), Policy Exchange (2016).

The emerging technologies radar is central to RSSB’s horizon scanning activities
