IBM wants to relieve Aussie traffic pain

Big Blue to bust bottlenecks

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

IBM is attempting to fix Australia's transport infrastructure woes investing in a Smart Transport Research Centre (STRC) based at Queensland University of Technology (QUT).

A recent survey conducted by IBM, the Commuter Pain Index, revealed that 81 per cent of drivers experience travel stress.

IBM will tip in software and consulting expertise that it has garnered from solving similar transport problems around the world including in Finland, the UK, Singapore and Sweden.

The STRC will be an incubator for proving solutions for Queensland, which will then be scaled and extended to the rest of Australia. Stated projects include research into predictive routes to allow people to plan the easiest way to their destination using real-time information, congestion reduction to minimise traffic queues, strategies for equitable road-use and smarter technology to dynamically manage special purpose lanes to optimise public transport. ®
