The 5G connected network of roads will provide quicker and more accurate data to traffic control centres than what the current system of data collection offers.
The scheme will encourage drivers of older cars to stop using their vehicles in exchange for mobility credits which could be used on car club services for example.
A share of £2.4 million has been awarded to seven consortiums to launch 5G-enabled road and rail transport trials across the West Midlands.
The trial will launch to the public in Birmingham and Coventry on 10 September and up to 10,000 e-scooters are to be rolled-out across the region soon after.
