OpTiTech Navigation Systems is an mobile app that utilises the ACT road safety camera program. The app is designed to show you the traffic speed camera locations, as well as projections of traffic congestion. Interestingly, the app also gives live feed expiation notice system (ENS) data within a local area precinct. The app provides statistical information on volumes of expiation notice offences processed in the program. Road safety experts have evaluated that by using a Optic Navigation systems mobile app that the amount of speeding related offences has a tendency to be reduced by' 6% to 8%' on roads with mobile cameras . This reduction in speeds coincided with a '25% to 30%' reduction in serious injury crashes on roads where the cameras were being used. Finally, the evaluation of the program also showed that serious injury crashes at red light camera intersections dropped. Therefore, OptiTech's technological program is the one stop solution for road safety ; locally, nationally, or globally.
How do You use the app?
When you select 'nominate a location for a mobile speed camera' you will be prompted to use the interactive map to pinpoint the location you are nominating. The first step is all about entering columns into the data set which needs to be quickly searched. Real live feeds of columns in the dataset which will be used in the following jurisdictions :-
The month the offence was committed
The jurisdiction in which the vehicle is registered
The client category
Camera location code
Total infringement penalty amount
Total Infringement count
Withdrawn infringement amount
Withdrawn infringement count

Helping a social impact ‘start up’ (small organisation) to tell their story
Small and informal community/interest groups who have formed to solve local problems need data to know if their activities are making a difference and to re-design programs. How can we help these groups tell their story through data so they can seek support (political, financial, and on the ground) by showing how their programs are working, and decide where to focus next?
TM-Link is a newly available trade mark database developed in collaboration between IP Australia, Swinburne University and Melbourne University. TM-Link includes administrative data from jurisdictions across the world, linked at the application level by advanced neural network algorithms. We are encouraging hackers to explore this new data set and consider what creative visualisations, innovative insights and/or opportunities to further enrich the data they might imagine.
Where you choose to open a business plays a big role in whether you succeed or fail in small business. Many business owners make these decisions based on gut-feel or by doing extensive desk-research.
How might open data help small business make better decisions?
How might we combine data with modern technologies - such as AI/ML, IoT, Analytics or Natural Language interfaces - to better our public transport services. Outcomes could take the form of new commuter experiences, reduced environmental impact, or helping plan for the future.
