Abstract. The study and analysis of the world perspective directions of technological development of transport sphere is an urgent task. This task ensures the organization of scientific research and strategic planning of the development of the national economy. The article proposes to identify prior innovation directions (ex. transportation field). These directions are based on the synthesis of Foresight methods — scientometric and patent analysis. Several EU strategic policy documents of the transportation field have been analyzed. As the result the leading technological trends were shown. The trends underpin the prospects for innovative technologies through bibliometric and patent analysis, which are based on the Web of Science and Derwent Innovation search platforms. The article describes the most perspective areas of technological development in the transportation field. These areas include artificial intelligence, big data, 5G technologies, memory on the neural network and the Internet of Things. It is concluded that there is growing importance of digital technology in the field of development and research in the world, especially the transportation field. The author’s conclusion is based on detailed patent analysis, where the most promising technological directions of the transportation field are established. This analysis is combining two patent dynamics analyses: detailed analysis of patent codes, according to the International Patent Classification (IPC) and analysis of the patent landscape of technology for each identified promising area.

Keywords: forecasting, Foresight, Derwent Innovation, Web of Science, innovation, transportation.
