Overview and Responsibilities

The role of Software Engineering staff in CSIRO is to support innovative research and scientific achievements, by bringing innovation out of the lab and into the real world, through product development and platform engineering. The Transport Analytics Group (part of the Data Analytics and Decision Sciences research program) is Data61's research and development arm for providing data-driven solutions for smart planning, implementation and management of infrastructure and future transport. They enhance conventional tools using data-driven techniques, which positions the group to complement existing products and services in the market. Their solutions involve ML/AI-based surrogate models that can replace or augment computation-intensive physical models, whether for real-time prediction of traffic congestion propagation or streaming analytics on structural health of critical infrastructure. The Transport Analytics group’s Sydney Harbour Bridge Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) platform has almost 3000 sensors and the ADAIT transport data analytics platform handles millions of daily data transactions. This includes real-time streaming data from traffic control systems, transport operation systems, sensors and journey transactions. The platforms host predictive analytics modules that derive actionable insights from data for intelligent asset and journey management. The group has been recognised by prestigious awards, including the ITS Australia National Award for Research (2014, 2015, 2018), AIIA iAwards (2019), Committee for Sydney Smart City Awards (2018) and CSIRO Collaboration Medal (2018). The group has ongoing collaborations with numerous government agencies, research institutes and industry partners. Additional information on the group can be found at:
