Through strategic partnerships with government and industry, and some ground breaking innovations, the team at rCITI are shaping the way forward for the future of transport. The Mission of the Research Centre for Integrated Transport Innovation (rCITI) is to be a world-leading organisation in integrated interdisciplinary research and development. This is being achieved through a range of research initiatives made possible by the group’s investigation of sustainable approaches to transport infrastructure and operations, as well as its extensive liaison with government and industry. rCITI’s vision is to reshape the field of multi-modal transport engineering and planning, by introducing new innovative techniques and technologies. This will enhance society by integrating methodologies across disciplines and contextual considerations. The Centre bases its research activities around five core research pillars:- Transport Planning – ITS Communications – Infrastructure – Energy/Fuel – Computational Sustainability.
The Transport Engineering Research Group is recognised nationally and internationally for performing high quality theoretical and applied research in a diverse set of domains of transport engineering, and is the only one of its kind in Australia actively doing research on a comprehensive set of areas related to transport engineering including: network design; optimisation; pricing; safety; planning; risk assessment; demand modelling; public transport analysis; traffic management; land use modelling; simulation; operation research.
With eighteen academic and research staff, the Group has been rapidly expanding, with 26 PhD and 4 Masters students in 2016.
