Why are some individuals more likely to speed while driving than others? How can new transport technologies be leveraged to address the mobility needs of an ageing national population? Why has per capita car use stagnated or declined in most developed countries?
Researchers at I4C are engaged in a number of different transport-related themes.
- New transport technologies and services
Major technological and infrastructural changes over coming years, such as the introduction of autonomous vehicles, growth in shared mobility services, the commercialization of unmanned aerial vehicles, and continued advances in alternative fuel vehicle technology, are expected to upend current patterns of travel and land use behaviour.
- I4C is part of the iMove Cooperative Research Centre, the newly formed $55 million research hub that aims to create a more integrated transit system incorporating smartphones, driverless vehicles and public transport
- Choice methods for modelling impacts of new transportation services
- Ageing, mobility and driverless cars
- Future mobility in Australia and South East Asia
- Road safety
The annual economic cost of road crashes in Australia is estimated to be $27 billion. In 2013 alone, road traffic crashes resulted in 35,059 hospitalized injuries and 1,187 fatalities in Australia.
- Discouraging mobile phone use while driving
- Bicycle helmet use and risk-taking behaviours
- Household travel surveys
Most metropolitan regions in the world regularly conduct household travel surveys for the purposes of transport planning and policy-making. These surveys are the bedrock of empirical travel demand analysis.
- Limitations of GPS-based surveys
- The Western Australia Household Travel Survey
