What we aren't talking about enough in Smart Mobility

Smart Mobility is an increasingly important topic in the Smart Cities and Communities conversation. However, it can be easy to get caught in the hype of automated vehicles and other emerging transport technology and miss the other important aspects of this subject.

During this webinar we will hear from ASCA board member and 2018 Churchill Fellow Zoe Eather, who recently returned from a 2 month trip around the world investigating Smart Mobility. From March to May 2019, Zoe visited the USA, Mexico, Canada, the UK, the Netherlands, Spain, South Africa and South Korea, meeting with a variety of stakeholders in the Smart Mobility space and gathering real learnings about how these technologies are being integrated in each place. 

Zoe will share her insights from her Churchil Fellowship experience, focusing on what we are not talking about enough in the realm of Smart Mobility and how this can enable more liveable Australian communities.

Objectives:

Provide members with insights into the challenges and opportunities of Smart Mobility integration around the world and how this can apply to Australian communities.

Our speaker:

Zoe Eather - 2018 Churchill Fellow, ASCA Board Member, Founder of My Smart Community

Date: Wednesday 31st of July, 10am-11am

Free for ASCA Members, $33 for non-members.

Opportunities & Challenges of Open Data & Data Sharing

Opportunities & Challenges of Open Data & Data Sharing

  • Australian Smart Communities Association (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Data sharing is rapidly becoming a norm across many organisations. Without a doubt this trend helps drive creation of new products and services, encourages citizen collaboration, solves problems more effectively and can assist in developing an agile and resilient workforce.

However, before embracing data sharing, organisations go through rigorous review of data sharing processes & policies.

Some organisations stall here, paralysed by fear of risks and the unknown and failing to understand how data sharing can drive success across multiple strategic directions.

During this webinar we will hear from both camps: those that share their data and those that built new innovative solutions using open data. We will hear about motivations and hurdles both camps faced, as well as benefits they are seeing.

Objectives:

Provide members with insights into the experiences of organisations who have developed or are developing data sharing strategies.

Speakers:

Chris Bennetts - Executive Director at Transport for NSW

Fiona Woodger - Manager, Strategic Policy in the Queensland Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy

Lachlan Spedding - CEO and Founder of Orbmaps

Ryan Prosser - CTO and Co-Founder at Floodmapp

Moderated by Jesse Cardey - Open Data evangelist at City of Greater Geelong.

Date: Tuesday 4th of June, 10am-11am

Experiences Developing Smart City Data Strategy

Experiences Developing Smart City Data Strategy

New smart city technologies generate lots of data - pedestrian movement, cctv, lighting, environmental and other data are just some examples. This data is a valuable resource that can be tapped by councils and communities to gain new insights and provide new and improved services.

Managing, using this data and making it available to those who can benefit from it are challenges that all councils will face. Fortunately some councils have already been tackling this - this webinar is an opportunity to hear their experiences in developing data strategies for their communities.

The webinar will be interactive with opportunities for members to ask questions of the panel.
