Enhancing eco-efficiency for urban transportation by adopting clouds and pervasive computing technologies.

For the first time in history, more than half of the world’s population lives in urban areas. In just a few decades, 70% of people will live in cities. To face the challenge of such rapid urbanisation, ISUNS focuses on the eco-efficiency of urban passenger transportation.

The ITIDLab proposal is one of only nine to have been selected for funding in 2013. Sixty submissions were received in the Asian region from more than thirty colleges and universities.

The International Tangible Interaction Design Lab (ITIDLab) is a partnership between Monash University, Tsinghua University (China) and Tokyo Zokei University (Japan) initiated in 2010. The main focus of this international-scaled collaboration is to explore design-based applications and investigate how new technologies will inform and contribute to design practice, research and education in each country.
