- Improve the safety and experience of road users by predicting or identifying incidents and events using Sat Nav data (e.g. from TomTom, Google Maps, etc), and providing appropriate alerts and decision support to relevant Transport Operation Centres.
- Real-time information on traffic flows is available from Sat Nav providers, such as TomTom and Google Maps. Traffic flows are affected by variations in road-use (e.g. congestion during peak times), incidents (such as inclement weather, accidents, slips, etc), and events (e.g. signal phasing, variable speed recommendations, detours, concerts, etc).
- Anomalies in traffic flows can indicate, and even predict, situations requiring intervention by Transport Operations Centre personnel - e.g. a stretch of roadworks where traffic flows suggest road users are not reducing their speed as required (indicating a risk factor for accidents and requiring additional interventions to slow traffic), or traffic slowing down unexpectedly on an open stretch of road (potentially indicating an accident or hazard on the road, requiring further inspection), etc.
- The project team (the students and, optionally, supervising staff) will be expected to attend at least three meetings at the NZTA Innovation Zone: a project briefing, a progress update, and a project debrief.
- The project briefing will outline preferred development principles and technologies to be used for the project - e.g. Cloud first, GitHub code repository, build automation, DevOps, etc.
- The Student, Supervisor and/or the University must enter into a Privacy Protection Agreement with the Sponsor, prior to any Personal Information (as defined in section 2(1) of the Privacy Act 1993) being provided to the Student, Supervisor and/or the University for the purposes of the Research Project.
