Abstract: Evaluating the future impacts of transport innovation on society is notoriously difficult. Yet foresight and monitoring tools are important to anticipate on possible futures so that research funding and policy making efforts can be guided. This paper presents a comprehensive two-tiered approach to 1) identify new and emerging technologies and trends in transport and 2) leverage a transport research database and analysis tool to assess the status of transport research and innovation. The approach is applied to the field of Connected and Automated Transport (CAT). The level of public investment is identified and the geographical distribution of research organizations shown. We argue that this approach can aid policy makers to support the future development of CAT technologies and help researchers to forge collaborations and identify research gaps.
