- Improve people’s experience with- and access to- multimodal transport, by using digital technology, existing data and/or data generated by novel sensors. The work should be based on a user-centered methodology.
- Examples of multimodal transport include Car -> Bus -> Bike, or Rideshare -> Train -> Taxi -> Ferry -> Walking, etc.
- An example (but not a requirement) might be a decision support app that combines real-time taxi, public transport, ride/bike-share, and weather data to provide commuters with transport options that align with their personal preferences, while also providing dynamic pricing that will automatically load-balance the transport system’s capacity.
- The project should include a description of how it builds on the current state of the art and best practice in transport systems globally.
- 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.
- Android and iOS apps (where applicable) should use the same base C # code. We use Xamarin as our current mobile app development framework for code reusability - MacBooks are available on loan for use at the NZTA Innovation Zone.
- 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.
