Our top 10 articles for 2023
It’s been a record traffic year for the iMOVE website, not to mention a bumper year for new iMOVE projects. And for a look at what’s been garnering the most attention this year we’ve compiled a list of the top 10 most-read articles for the year.
Also, a reminder about iMOVE’s office closure dates for the holiday season. The office will be closed on Friday 22 December 2023, and re-open on Tuesday 2 January 2024.
Now, to the top 10 most-read iMOVE articles for 2023 …
That project identified options in the use of technology to address the city’s key transport and mobility challenges, providing a compelling case for increased State and Federal government investment in smart transport technology priorities and support increased community understanding of the benefits to be realised.READ THE FULL ARTICLE
This is the published outcome article, along with final report, of the Developing a low/zero emission transport strategy for Australia project.
The final report is an important, broad sweep of a document, FACTS: Framework for an Australian Clean Transport Strategy. It is the result of an assembly of a large group of Australian scientific experts, providing evidence-based guidance to local, state/territory and federal governments on how they can support transport decarbonisation in a timeframe congruent with global climate targets.READ THE FULL ARTICLE
Another project outcome article, this one summarising the completed CAVI 500-vehicle C-ITS Field Operational Test project, and includes three final reports on the work. The final reports also cover an associated project, Ipswich Connected Vehicle Pilot: Safety and user perceptions evaluation.
This trial saw more than 350 participants have their vehicles retrofitted with connected vehicle technology for nine months. In the trial, this technology allowed those vehicles to communicate with roadside infrastructure and transport management systems.READ THE FULL ARTICLE
A perennial end-of-year top-tenner, and the first appearance this year in the list of articles from our (quite) new Transport Topics section of the site. Here we cover general information on Mobility as a Service, along with our articles, projects, and webinars on the topic.READ THE FULL ARTICLE
For the past five years a world-leading piece of autonomous vehicle research and development has been taking place in Queensland, first on a test track, then moving on to public roads in urban and regional environments. This is the outcome article for the Cooperative and Highly Automated Driving Safety Study project, and includes all final reports and documents.READ THE FULL ARTICLE
Project outcome articles feature quite heavily in this year’s top 10, and here’s another one. This time it’s the article and final report for the Light Insight Trial (LiT): Smart bike lights data and road safety project.
The impetus for the project was a “… strong and immediate need to investigate innovative methods to ensure the safety of vulnerable road users, particularly cyclists.” The innovation in this case was a smart bike light, and the collection, analysis, and visualisation of the data collected by the bike light.READ THE FULL ARTICLE
This project is investigating the use of Co-operative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) technologies to improve road safety for motorcycle riders, with the research to be undertaken concurrently in Queensland and Victoria, in off-road scenarios.
Motorcycle riders are over-represented in fatal and serious injury crashes compared to other transport modes – too many riders’ lives are lost to preventable crashes. This project will leverage emerging C-ITS technologies to connect riders with infrastructure, cloud and vehicle data providing alerts to improve rider awareness to relevant real-time safety issues.READ THE FULL ARTICLE
It’s an ever-present, ever-increasing modern problem, and this primer on all things traffic congestion was a new article published this year, and it has garnered a good degree of interest.
And it represents another opportunity to showcase our new Transport Topics section.READ THE FULL ARTICLE
This was an event we held on 15 and 16 September 2023. It was an experience in a roomful of student teams to improve an aspect of a state’s transport system, using real data for real solutions. It allowed them to pick up new skills, and meet people in the industry.
It was a great success, and it’s the type of event we’d very much like to revisit in the future.READ THE FULL ARTICLE
And this year’s top attention-getter was the announcement of our Impact Extension Program, in which iMOVE would 100% fund two projects to the tune of $500,000. The links are in the article, but the two winners of the program were:
- OneDock: Supercharging e-micromobility
- See Me: Transforming passenger experience on public transport
