Melbourne’s Living Laboratory explores multimodal ecosystem

Day 1

Delegates to this year’s World Congress can find out about what is said to be the world’s first operational ‘living laboratory’ on the streets of last year’s host city, Melbourne in Australia.

Set up by the University of Melbourne, the living laboratory is designed to research high-tech solutions to ease road congestion and enhance safety.

One of the projects, led by Professor Majid Sarvi from the Melbourne School of Engineering, is the Australian Integrated Multimodal Ecosystem (AIMES), which will connect all parts of the transport environment. “Currently we have online maps, which incur a 20-minute delay, and we have public transport sites for estimated travel times and delays, but neither of these systems talks to each other,” says Professor Sarvi.

More than 1,000 sensors are being installed on existing roadside poles, public transport vehicle, cars, trucks and bicycles to create a connected multimodal system that provides real-time traffic information and alternative routes and enhances safety. The sensors are being placed at various locations within a 6km grid connected to 50km of freeways. More information is available at the ITS Australia pavilion.
