11:10 | 1. A strategic approach to autonomous vehicles
Autonomous or Driverless vehicles were tested on Australian roads in 2015, when the country’s first trials took place in Adelaide. The use of new innovative technology in traffic management is being implemented at a pace that is hard to keep up with, so what does the future of intelligent road infrastructure look like?

Smart technology allows us to use energy more efficiently, reducing the need to build more power stations however there are limited ways to store electricity when power generators are producing a surplus. Understand what pumped hydro energy storage is with using Snowy Hydro 2.0 as an example.

Smart meters have two main components: an electronic meter that measures energy information accurately and a communication module that transmits and receives data. The long-term goal of energy management systems is to employ knowledge of consumption patterns to reduce energy costs, by moving consumption to low demand periods. In practice, energy management systems achieve this by, insofar as possible, having connected electrical devices run during periods where power is cheaper due to low demand.

Smart meters allow water utilities to better understand outages and power status information automatically and on request. Discover how the IoT can be used to automatically generate information to predict and prevent outages in real time and send messages to dispatch a crew to fix issues before they arise.

The Sydney Metro project has secured $20 billion as part of the NSW Government’s Rebuilding NSW plan which will bust congestion and revolutionise public transport through a new 66 kilometre high capacity rail line. Sydney Metro will help deliver a 60% per cent capacity increase across the entire network, or move an extra 100,000 people per hour across the city.

The Queensland University of Technology (QUT) are developing and testing new integrated renewable hydrogen energy systems for public transport to help reduce not only financial risk, but also strategic risk in terms of the social and environmental problems arising from the continued use of fossil fuel based systems.
