The Department of Trade and Industry's funding support initiative UKISHELP, believes that a report offering a glimpse into the future of the transport sector could inspire more companies in Great Britain to achieve European information technology funding success. The report commissioned by the Information Society Technologies Advisory Group examines a new concept called Ambient Intelligence. It looks at the way new technologies will integrate microcomputers into everyday objects, making interaction with people as natural as possible. The report draws on current European Commission-funded research and uses real-life scenarios to describe what living with Ambient Intelligence will be like for European citizens in the year 2010.
