Development of a smart rail route map
Australasian Railway Association (Maria Morozova) / Deakin University (Doug Creighton)
This project identified a long-term vision for technology and telecommunications in the rail industry over the future 30 years through the establishment of a common view of priorities, themes, timelines and actions. The project produced the Smart Rail Route Map, a framework to transition towards digital and communications systems that are flexible, connected and interoperable to deliver cross-industry benefits. The project outputs will be used by the Australian rail industry to identify where the industry can achieve safer operations, reliability, customer value, reduced costs, and foster innovation, collaboration and alignment.
12 December 2017 to 31 December 2018
Total contracted budget (including in-kind)
Key rail areas considered by industry to be most impacted by the introduction of new digital and communications technologies were:
- Passenger Customer Experience,
- Freight Customer Experience,
- Traffic & Network Management, and
- High Performing Railways.
Following the release of the Smart Rail Route Map, a Smart Rail Executive Committee was formed, comprising of key representatives from the rail sector, to provide guidance and champion the implementation of priorities by industry.
