Our magazines, platforms, conferences, projects and content are IMMERSED in:
What is the Body of Knowledge?
It is a single, curated source of knowledge that goes beyond a collection of articles, books, or interviews and represents a coherent assembly of knowledge regarding smart mobility plans and implementations worldwide, accessible through several different delivery channels.
The idea was inspired by the Project Management Institute’s Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK), which captures a similar body of knowledge for project management.
The origin of the concept lies in an initial discussion regarding a Book on the Smart Mobility Revolution →. While the book will contain the core of the Body of Knowledge, it was felt that additional tools and information would be extremely valuable to supplement the core and bring the subject to life. It was also felt that it is a need to project knowledge in slightly different ways to different users.
We realised that an accompanying platform would be extremely valuable for the book and an extremely powerful digital platform to keep EVOLVING, so we created: COMPASS - the Smart Mobility Body of Knowledge.
The MAIN OBJECTIVE of the Body of Knowledge is to provide support for the SMART MOBILITY REVOLUTION
We perceive that a revolution is already underway that will lead to different ways of doing business, new METHODS OF DELIVERING transportation and the application of new and emerging technologies.
Immersive publishing gives us some amazing abilities to go beyond the book page or even the glossy magazine page. We can add an extra dimension to our content by bringing it to life with visualizations and tools.
We have understood that to get the best from the revolution it is necessary to be equipped with the appropriate knowledge.
The Body of Knowledge sits at the nexus of publication of information, capture and dissemination of practical experience and lessons learned and practical application of the new knowledge.
It is a product of close collaboration between subject matter experts in smart mobility, content management, immersive publishing, & journalism specialists and with its dynamic aspects of web technology that allow us to fully incorporate evolving practical experience and emerging technologies.
The Body of Knowledge is an element of the revolution as it represents a radically new way to deliver knowledge and information within the dynamic smart mobility segment.
The COMPASS INITIATIVE
We can only go forward IF we've LEARNED LESSONS from where we have been
The COMPASS initiative is a collabaration between Bob McQueen & Associates with H3B Media Ltd and has resulted in bringing our unique skill sets, vast experience and global networks together in our new partnership - "H3BM", offering the highest standards in immersive publishing, project delivery and the creation of COMPASS - "The Smart Mobility Body of Knowledge"
Our journey began in 2015 when H3B Media opened an office within the Smart City Living Lab, within the Royal Borough of Greenwich, London, UK, after being invited by the then, Digital Greenwich Chief Innovation Officer, Paul Copping, to join their community and explore how we could create a physical and digital innovation centre and an international knowledge hub.
From the initial creation of a Review Body of international experts & practitioners, we knew that an immersive, scalable, digital platform would be an essential key element. Our work, since then, has contiued in this pursuit, leading us on a road of discovery and learning across the industry, that we have constantly put into practice, testing and trialing, which has evolved into FOUR DISTINCT PHASES:
RESEARCH, BUILDING & TESTING PERIOD (completed)
INTERACTIVE RESEARCH & LAUNCH PERIOD (now active)
CONSOLIDATION OF KNOWLEDGE & DEEP DIVE PERIOD
REVIEW & EXPANSION PERIOD
Having learned from our lessons of exploration, discovery and application during PHASE ONE, we have brought together an outstandanding, international team of individuals, a mindful approach methodology and cutting-edge immersive publishing technology, as we now enter into the NEXT PHASE:
PHASE TWO - INTERACTIVE RESEARCH & LAUNCH PERIOD
We made enough progress to now effectively engage the market and the audience in an INTERACTIVE DEVELOPMENT SEQUENCE
We want to establish a two-way dialogue in which you can share in the knowledge and provide input to the Body of Knowledge.
If you stand to benefit from a rich stream of knowledge that will accelerate progress and optimize transport, then let’s work together
