Transport Analytics Group

The Transport Analytics Group is Data61's research and development arm for advancing data science in transport. CSIRO's Data61 is Australia's leading data innovation group, which currently partners with 29 universities in Australia and more than 90 corporate and 30 government structures in order to create Australia's data-driven future. The Transport Analytics Group consists of 4 dedicated teams: AI in Transport, Transport Platforms, Intelligent Mobility and Data City. The Group's capabilities are further strengthened by a number of seconded university researchers, Ph.D. students and contributed staff from various institutes.

Our Group is built on the strength of the former Advanced Data Analytics in Transport (ADAIT) team. Founded in 2013, the ADAIT team established itself as an international front runner in applying state-of-the-art artificial intelligence, machine learning and cloud computing in the Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) industry, producing top quality research outcomes and high performance software. The ADAIT team was a multi-time winner of ITS Australia's National Award on Research (2014, 2015, 2018). The team won the prestigious NSW Premier's Innovation Initiative in 2015 to deliver predictive modelling capabilities for congestion management in Sydney. The team became a core partner in the Transport for NSW (TfNSW) initiative for On-Demand Public Transport in 2017, with responsibilitt for predictive data modelling. The team collaborated with NSW Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) on a number of innovation projects. The ADAIT team stepped up to form the Transport Analytics Group by the end of 2018.

We value our strong connections with transport agencies, corporates, industry peak-bodies and research institutes. The partnerships are our way to forward science and create impact in the fast growing technology space.
