  • Innovations and Emerging Technologies in V2X and Co-Operative ITS
    When vehicles are connected to one another and are able to exchange information with the infrastructure, the accident risk is reduced and pollutant emissions go down. Vehicle-to-everything communication (V2X) helps improve traffic flow and is an important step on the road to automated driving. The new capabilities of future mobility will only be able to develop their full potential with a stable and reliable data connection.

 AGENDA 
SITE TOUR A: Autonomous NSW Shuttle Deployment Site Tour at Sydney Olympic Park
The state government of NSW has recently reinforced its position on driverless technology, committing to a new “Centre of Excellence” for autonomous cars. In this site tour, you will visit recent deployment of autonomous shuttle at Sydney Olympic Park and Armidale CBD where you will discover the deployment challenges and learning lessons from autonomous shuttle. The five-kilometre route is currently the longest driverless shuttle deployment in Australia and, due to the city’s challenging road infrastructure and terrain, is understood to be among the more complex routes for automated vehicles.
Site Tour A
SITE TOUR B: Mosman Council Smart Parking
Parking is one of the great banes of traffic; an IBM study found that approximately 30% of a city’s traffic congestion is caused by drivers searching for a parking spot. But smart parking systems are now making it easier for drivers to find vacant parking spaces, in turn freeing up the roads – which benefits drivers, commuters and the environment alike. In Mosman, where a 2016 survey revealed that 33% of locals think traffic and parking will be the big issue facing the area over the next decade, such technology is already taking off. Join us for a visit to Mosman Council to see their smart parking tech in action: how it improves the parking user experience, what challenges were faced and overcome, what opportunities for improvement remain and more.
Site Tour B
SITE TOUR C: Uber Air Taxis & Flying Cars Presentation
Uber’s ‘flying cars’ could be operational in Sydney or Melbourne by 2020. Uber Air has recently submitted a plan to both cities to test air taxis and bring mobility as a service into the third dimension. If either Sydney or Melbourne is successful, the tech giant would work with local developers to build up to 25 “Skyports” in and around the city for landing and launching aircraft. In this site tour, you will hear Uber Air’s plan in brining air mobility as a third dimension to Australia that will transform Australia’s entire transportation landscape.
