Urban Mobility and Intelligent Transport workshop

This workshop was held on 25 June 2015, bringing together experts from universities in Victoria (University of Melbourne, Monash, RMIT, Swinburne, and La Trobe) and IBM research; sponsored by CCI, MNSI, and MSSI. We discussed the potential of IT for providing smart forms of transport in Victoria in the future (“Urban Mobility and Intelligent Transport”). These experts from various fields (including real-time data mining, machine learning, multi-modal travel planning, behavioural study) agreed to work on an initiative on smart connected transport in Victoria. If you/your organisation would like to join this discussion, please contact us.

Timegeographic Querying of Mobile Information Databases for Travel Planning Purposes

Travel planning in highly dynamic transportation networks; networks encountering events at any time, requires communication capabilities and planning flexibility from all travelling entities. In this paper we suggest and test a novel information dissemination strategy, which computes the relevance of pieces of information based on smart methods borrowed from timegeography. We will demonstrate that these methods lead to more efficient communication and effective travel planning than current methods.
