WEBINAR: Our future transport mobility environment
On 1 September 2020, at 11.00am (AEST) iMOVE will host another free webinar, titled Our future transport mobility environment: An integrated approach.
This webinar presents progress in how we are exploring and challenging our traditional approaches to transport operations and mobility through a collaborative research project currently underway at at iMOVE, Conceptual architecture for future transport and mobility environment and involves our partners Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads and ARRB. Transport and mobility management involves a combination of people, processes, systems and technology. With significant changes occurring in technology and mobility services, there is an opportunity and need to capture the current paradigm and plan for the emerging future transport and mobility environment. The project addresses how we can move away from the way we do things today and think/act differently over the next ten years.
UPDATE: 1 September 2020 – watch the webinar video

What will the webinar cover?
This webinar presents progress in how we are exploring and challenging our traditional approaches to transport operations and mobility through a collaborative research project at iMOVE involving partners Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads and ARRB. The project addresses how we can move away from the way we do things today and think/act differently over the next 10 years.
We will bring you up-to-speed on development of a conceptual architecture that will draw all the key elements together to identify gaps and a program of work to meet future transport needs. This architecture is built on a common understanding of the elements and their interactions from the jurisdictions and industry.
This free, public webinar will be of interest to anyone involved in managing or delivering transport systems or solutions. We welcome your views.
See below for the list of speakers.

Dr Charles Karl, National Technical Leader for Congestion, Freight and Mobility, ARRB
Dr Charles Karl leads the Network Operations, Freight and Heavy Vehicles teams with the Australian Road Research Board (ARRB). In addition, Charles is the co-technical lead for the Australian Driverless Vehicles Initiative (ADVI). Some current areas of research and development which Charles is directly involved with include: traffic congestion, ITS assets, safety, road user charging, compliance and enforcement, urban freight, freight data, autonomous vehicles, field testing, trials and pilots.
Charles’s doctoral thesis in 2003 investigated the response of drivers to a dynamic traveller information system which he had co-developed through a business he founded earlier. In 1999, Charles co-founded Custom Traffic Pty Ltd, which developed a traveller information system based around an aggregation engine that fuses traffic data from traffic control systems such as SCATS, into speeds and travel times for each link and movement on the road network. This information is supplied to travel information service providers such as Intelematics Australia and utilised in products such as the SUNA traffic information and on Google maps.
