  1. 1. Riding the nexus<br />Communication and Transport<br />Naturally mobile<br />
  2. 2.
  3. 3. Increasingly, we’re living a digital life<br />Using a Mobile Phone 95%<br />Online Sending/Receiving Email 94% <br />Sending or Receiving an SMS 87%<br />Downloading/Listening to Audio Online 84%<br />Listening to the Radio 78% <br />Visiting a Social Networking Site 67%<br />Shopping Online 60% <br />Reading a Newspaper 34%<br />Watching Primetime TV at Home 33%<br />Using Mobile to get Information 26%<br />Watching TV/Video on Mobile 25%<br />Reading Magazines 23%<br />Sources: Asia Pacific Consumer Technographics Survey, 2008<br /> Television Ratings in Australia, 2008<br /> Data compiled by NationMaster from OzTam, TV Networks <br /> Nielsen Media Research<br />

  5. 5. Multitasking<br />
  6. 6. The importance of connection<br />We start our search on Google<br />We go to our friends for recommendations<br />On the whole, we are:<br />three times more influenced by our peers than by formal commentators (critics, journalists, experts etc)<br />85.9% more like to trust review from our peers (our community) over a critics<br />84% more likely to trust any user review (or recommendationover that from a professional<br />
  7. 7. The key connected device<br />
  8. 8. But what does it mean to us?<br />91% of us keep it within 1 metre of us, 24 x 7<br />Almost 90% would take it to the toilet with them <br />60% of us take it to bed with us <br />33% of us would rather lose our wallet than our phone<br />14% of us answer it during sex*<br />28% of us send sexually explicit SMS messages<br />23% have dumped a partner via SMS <br />We anthropomorphise this device in unique manners<br />Mobile is our most important connection: 70% would refuse to lend a phone to a friend for a day<br />* Unless you’re in the USA, where it is closer to 35%<br />
  9. 9. ‘Mobile’ doesn’t just mean ‘phone’<br />GPS systems<br />Music Players<br />Watches<br />Book readers<br />New devices (Chumby)<br />Cameras<br />
  10. 10. Where are we now?<br />24.5m mobile handsets (113% penetration)*<br />3G handsets – est 14m** or around 50% <br />Double that of a year ago<br />The iPhone phenomena<br />45m sold globally, about 1.8% all handsets, Blackberry about 2% <br />Nokia, Sony Ericsson and Samsung still lead***<br />850,000 in Australia**<br />Another 250,000 iPod Touch devices use mobile products and service<br />Representing about 4.5% of handsets<br />But around 60-65% of all data/apps/access<br />Mobile internet use: almost 10m active monthly users (40%)***<br />Half of these estimated to be daily<br />* Telsyte research ** Industry best guess *** AMPLI Survey<br />
  11. 11. Top Apps (Comscore EU study)<br />62.6% of iPhone 3G users have used an app in a month and momentum is growing. 6 months ago 51% of iPhone owners used an app for news and info.<br />In comparison 21% of Nokia N95 and 37% of Blackberry Storm use an app.<br />Product: MobiLens Data: Three month average ending March 09 EU5 (UK, DE, FR, ES + IT) - N= 70,964<br />
  12. 12. Internet = Information Snacking<br />Local information also prominent, e.g. maps, movie listings, business directories, traffic , etc<br />Transactional services starting to emerge – e.g. Auction Sites<br />The combination of local services and transactions will bring about new business models.<br />Product: MobiLens Data: Three month average ending March 09 EU5 (UK, DE, FR, ES + IT) - N= 70,964<br />
  13. 13. Top Information Services (Aus)<br />48% of respondents used an information service of some sort - up 30% on a year ago<br />Most services used at least once a month, with news and weather most frequent use<br />Expectation of future use is high, with 30% growth expected next year also <br />Source: Australia Mobile Phone Lifestyle Index Survey (AIMIA) 2009<br />

  15. 15. Looking for the Semantic in mobile<br />Key Point – “The user interface everywhere”Everything will become connected (wirelessly)<br />Addition of mobile sensors to non-consumer devices to allow for machine to machine semantic conversation<br />Sensors in truck tyres that assess wear and order their own replacements en route (with least impact)<br />More interesting - use of existing mobile devices as intelligent sensors<br />GPS plus (time) in a car = traffic flows<br />GPS plus (weather sensing) = instant localised weather<br />

  21. 21. Built in sensors/smart helpers<br />Sensors to date include<br />Chemical analysis<br />Breathalyser <br />Blood test<br />Why not emissions? Carbon? <br />Air quality<br />Pressure sensors for types<br />
  22. 22. Augmented Plotting and Mapping<br />
  23. 23. Thoughts on the day #1<br />Alex Grant<br />Intelligent sensors – GPS feeding into intelligent GPS alerts systems – the size of a mobile phone or a mobile itself? <br />Wireless communication (Short range communication clusters). Connectsafe – SA technology, SA focus. Demonstrate benefit<br />DamithRanasinghe<br />RFID /MEM. Intelligent sensors, predictive maintenance. Predicative/preventative maintenance (not responsive)<br />Rocco Zito<br />Reduce congestion/ navigation systems based on intelligence. (Shortest path, vs shortest time real time conditions. <br />Update maps via wireless BB (ota?). Delta changes? (Who gets sued if emergency services use GPS – go a slower route? (SCATS – traffic signals)<br />Philip Blake<br />Traffic Management (SCATS). Cyclists/Pedestrian notification. Intervention (forward facing radar with automated braking. <br />
  24. 24. Thoughts on the day #2<br />Anita Byrnes (Forum 8 - Japanese Company) VR Studio (transport options)<br />VF/AR trials for planning modelling. Replay time based results (traffic analysis)<br />Calculation of fuel consumptions, eco impact based on simulation. Accident regressions etc<br />Robert Crossley (Agricultural supply chain software) (sugar)<br />Live feedback on harvest quality (web and localised to on-board tech). Sensors on fertilisers etc (holding periods) – does it sample quality to see if it works.<br /> FREDD – transport automation software. Realtime. Idle time reductions, bin weight optimisation, reduce double handling. GPS to mobile needed<br />James DiLiberto (Smart metering technology – Azzo Automation)<br />Knowledge is power. Real numbers. Measure<br />
  25. 25. Thoughts on the day #2<br />Peter Pudney (In-cab train drivers) Useful for electric cars?<br />Efficient travel/ uses remote sensing. Broad picture optimisation (not short term). Mobile – the sending sensor and the receiving local information (22%)<br />Darrell Bowyer (freight & commercial vehicles information)<br />Integrated communications (TML? Do we need a mark-up language?)<br />Modelling and simulation<br />Richard Yeo (Fuel Tool)<br />
  26. 26. Thoughts on the day<br />Mobile as sensor devices, GPS, RFID/MEM. M2M comms (semantic)<br />Mobile GPS – used to send information centrally, to calculate distance and to deliver return path information<br />Intelligent sensors (smart meters, smart trackers, smart interpreters and smart decision making) allows assessment of real-time information and conditions which can help us make better decisions on planning, speed, travel profile, timing of journeys etc<br />Aggregating this to a common source across all areas of transport (freight, private, public, pedestrian, cycles etc)<br />If we see the mobile as the target transport device, this can include entertainment (for passengers), alerts for changes in conditions, etc<br />
  27. 27. A comprehensive solution<br />Aggregated information to allow intelligent choices based on determined (known) information sensed in real time<br />Can we:<br />Use mobile phones as intelligent sensors to track and interpret journeys, traffic conditions<br />Use public transport information to know real journey and arrival time, not timetable information<br />Centralised ticketing feeding numbers, entry and exists to track journey, congestion, likely overcrowding<br />Feed road works, accident information into this to fine tune even more<br />To allow us to<br />Better plan public transport infrastructure based on real needs<br />Suggest quicker or greener (or fitter) or safer ways to get from A-&gt;B<br />Support both personal and commercial transportation<br />
