Creating sustainable transport systems and more liveable cities
The next important opportunity, and challenge, in providing transport infrastructure is through the availability of live data, low-priced technology, and connectivity within and between systems and travellers. With the rapid evolution of connected devices, and sensing and communication technologies, we are experiencing a once-in-a-generation opportunity to tackle complex issues in urban mobility.
At the Transport Technologies Research Group, we have aligned our research focus and efforts to take advantage of this new leap in technology diffusion.
Our research is focused on contemporary topics in transportation engineering including connected and automated vehicles and roadways, public transport and multimodal mobility-as-a-service (MaaS) systems, disruptive shared mobility services, and city logistics. We explore these topics from a multi-disciplinary perspective.

Our research approach to urban transport is based on the vision of an integrated multimodal transport system. A system that makes use of information and communication technologies and interacts with the built environment to promote a seamless flow of people and goods. Our team works on theories, methods, tools, and case studies that contribute to policymaking, planning, management, and operations of multimodal systems. We aim to advance the development of more accessible, equitable, safe, and sustainable societies and economies.
We develop holistic approaches and obtain comprehensive results when investigating complex issues in transport, such as the future of connected and automated vehicles and roadways, the next generation of public transport and MaaS systems, disruptive shared mobility services, and city logistics. The Australian Integrated Multimodal EcoSystem (AIMES) serves as the platform for our multidisciplinary research efforts that are divided into five themes.
