Moreover, compared to traditional transport modes (e.g. bike, car, bus and train), more options (like autonomous vehicle, electric vehicles, connected vehicle, and scooter) are emerging to provide solutions to unsolved problems as well as to post new challenges in planning for their impacts on the demand for urban transport. It is therefore necessary to revisit the essentials of urban transport planning to understand the effective use of digital data and new technologies, and how they can be used for providing smarter mobility solutions. This course will provide transport researchers and planners with knowledge about modern urban transport planning in the digital age.
By the end of this course you will understand how:
- Traditional methods are applied to transport planning
- Modern technology-based developments have led to change in transport planning over the last several decades. There are new data points and more means to receive the data. How will we use the data to manage our cities better? What roles will citizens have in using the information to improve their lives?
- Trends in society, environment and technology are likely to impact mobility, transport demand changes and supply. What are the possible impacts and outcomes form our actions today? Tomorrow?
- Transport estimates need to reflect above changes, how transport models need to be adapted to include all modes of travel, possible new modes, new technology and even new ways of urban living shaped by the transportation supply
- Innovative approaches can improve urban mobility at the digital age
What is unique about this course?
- You will learn more about Designing Urban Transport Planning
- You will gain an in-depth understanding of the application of Smart Mobility and new technologies in Transport Planning
- You will learn from real-life applications in cities around the world
- The course is delivered by experts conducting applied research on how infrastructure and social behaviour intersect to ensure more liveable cities and regions
Who should take this course?
Transport planners, professionals in the urban transportation sector and students interested in transportation planning would find this course useful to learn about tools and methods in implementing smarter mobility solutions.
Basic knowledge of Transport Planning and Data Analytics is preferred but not required.
This course is being delivered in conjunction with UOW SMART Infrastructure Facility, which is an international leader in applied infrastructure research helping to address the challenges of infrastructure planning and management both now and into the future.
