Dr John McCarthy
I lead our Intelligent Mobility activity from Dublin and am primarily responsible for helping our clients navigate their way through emerging digital transport challenges and help position themselves to deliver client centric sustainable transport solutions. I help shape conversations on a diverse range of topics, such as eMobility, Intelligent Transport systems (ITS), Mobility as a Service, Connected, Electric, Shared and Autonomous Vehicles.
Over the course of the last 20 or so years (how time flies!), I’ve been fortunate to have been involved in a number of exciting digital transport projects across the Globe. From Dublin to Dubai, these projects have ranged from creating policy at a city level to address new transport options, shaping alternative operating models for Government agencies to addressing the technical capabilities and considerations linked to testing and deployment of new technologies. Working with the Asian Development Bank, Port Operators, Departments for Transport, Road Safety Agencies, Highways Agencies, Transport Infrastructure providers, Heathrow Airport, and numerous city authorities, the development of digital solutions that link our physical and digital infrastructure capabilities together have been key to success.
I’ve been accepted into the UN’s OECD’s advisory working group on Artificial Intelligence and have been recently elected a Fellow of the Chartered Institution of Highways & Transportation as well as being an Executive Director with ITS Ireland.
