Smart Innovation Centre


Project overview

The Smart Innovation Centre is NSW’s hub for collaborative research and development of safe and efficient emerging transport technology.


Technology is constantly evolving presenting both opportunities and challenges in the way we plan and deliver passenger and freight transport services and infrastructure. We want to be leading the way in the application of new technology to the planning and management of future transport systems to ensure that we get the best outcomes for transport customers – and the Smart Innovation Centre is a part of that plan.

We want to ensure that emerging technologies and our existing infrastructure and projects align, maximising the benefits for our customers and industry. This will be achieved by building and maintaining partnerships between all levels of Government, the private sector, academia and investors.
