Online Conference Sessions
The program is structured in 4 Streams and includes a combination of Live Panel Sessions (carried over from the Brisbane National Conference event) and Live Q&A session to support a series of pre-recorded presenter videos.
How do you design a street space to suit all the users that engage in the space? With local residents, local council, commuters, bicycle riders, car parking, children walking to school, and people exercising all often happening in the same space, what is the best way to design the enhance the space for the community? Our panel explores allocation versus utilisation, car parking versus parklets, and kerbside for people.
We bring together our Movement and Place experts from around the country to discuss how the state governments are developing guidelines to improving place making for our local communities. Our experts will provide insights from New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, Queensland and New Zealand to discuss moving from theory to application.
Our Automated passenger transport session will discuss what automated rapid transit of the future could look like, the potential for government investment in in automated passenger transport, and the practical implications of planning a customer focused passenger rail. We expect to have lively debate between the views of our panellists.
We are bringing together a panel of industry leaders to discuss the varied scale of the freight transport task, and share recent planning updates about Port transport freight, road freight and rail freight.
This session will host leading industry experts to focus on planning for emissions through infrastructure changes, hydrogen as a fuel source for heavy vehicles, and ask the question if hydrogen buses are the way of the future.
Session MC: Michael Kane,Economic Development Queensland
This session will host leading industry experts, who will present the latest developments in connected and automated vehicle technologies, with a uniquely Australian lens. The industry is undergoing a transformation as vehicle manufacturers and road authorities seek to establish standardisation and advancement in emerging vehicle technologies. They seek new solutions in managing physical and digital infrastructure including data and connectivity, ensuring robust infrastructure to support CAVs, vehicle updates and maintenance, as well as post-production and post-deployment services. The speakers will share in their experience, recent developments in this space and what challenges and opportunities lie ahead in this fast-changing environment.
Our Intelligent Transport Systems session will explore how we are bringing ITS into our road systems, particularly on how we can make our Australian motorways smarter. Our expert panellists will shed light on new innovations in the ITS space as well as challenges faced with implementing smart motorways. Questions will be raised around how our panellists see ITS integrating in to the future of our cities to maximise the value of our existing road infrastructure.
We are bringing together a varied panel on the application of ‘Safety’ to our road networks to discuss new and innovative ways to make our projects and communities safer. Our panellists bring expertise from safety for bicycle riders and pedestrians, through to using ITS for improving safety in our project design.
The way we use and process data for transport modelling is rapidly changing, due to the developments in technology, automation, computing power and having more data at our fingertips. In this session we discuss the ways we can use data to improve customer journey experience, explore how we can use modelling as tool for exploring uncertainty to understand major project benefits, and developments to the ways we model.
