Centre of Excellence in Smart Transportation

MoU was signed between the Ministry of Road Transport and Highway (India) through the Indian Academy of Highway Engineers and University of New South Wales (UNSW) to set up a Centre for Advanced Transportation Technology and Systems (CATTS).

The MoU was exchanged between the Director of IAHE Mr. V L Patankar and Vice Chancellor of UNSW Prof. Ian Jacobs on April 10th, 2017 in the presence of Simon Birmingham, Australian Minister for Education.

The vision for CATTS is to:

• Accelerate the evaluation and adoption of new transportation technologies and explore market opportunities for them in India and Australia.

• Conduct research, development and training in the areas of transport system modelling and data for smart cities.

This would be the world’s first transportation centre involving two countries committed to seeing technological innovation for economic development through improved safety and reduced congestion.
