Enhanced personal mobility

Creating intelligent systems to interpret traveller needs and preferences.

The institute’s capability includes a team of researchers working on the development of systems to identify and establish methods to capture traveller journey preference metrics, and create intelligent systems to interpret traveller needs and preferences.

Swinburne’s Virtual Smart Mobility Research Facility and Internet-of-Things (IoT) laboratory are key to our research in the field of enhanced personal mobility and includes:

  • context- and situation-aware personalisation
  • integration, provisioning and delivery of mobility services
  • identification of service availability for mode and route options
  • specialised design innovation research where uptake/impact is a core measure in the research domains of future urban mobility
  • human-innovation interaction and user experience research.


  • IoT solutions for smarter citizens and cities: a smart mobile app for automated call handling that takes account of a user’s personal changing situations (to reduce interruption and driver distraction)
  • dynamic acquisition of traffic information and other location-based services, and their dynamic incorporation into a route-planning app (based on user preferences and enhanced personal mobility for aged population).
