Smart Australia

While IoT represents a disruptive force in nearly all industries, no other entity in the public sector is better positioned to harness the transformative value of IoT than cities and urban environments.  Smart Australia is both a call to arms and a challenge to Australian public sector organisations, to learn from other similar organisations, to embrace IoT and the AWS Cloud as an enabling platform, to leverage robust data analytics capabilities and to build smarter services for Australian citizens, businesses and visitors.

Panel Discussion: Mobility in the future city – what opportunities are there to revolutionise the way in which citizens are ‘mobile’ in the future city, and what bigger opportunities does this create?

‘Transport’ is quickly becoming less and less relevant in cities as ‘mobility’ becomes ever more important.

  • There is a huge array of potential future scenarios surrounding how people will be ‘mobile’ in cities. What are some of the most likely?
  • What opportunities are there to positively influence this future?
  • What are the implications of these likely scenarios for the way in which cities need to be planned today in order to enhance civic engagement and mobility tomorrow?
