From tracking cattle to tourists
Understanding Australia’s goods and people movement to save costs and target infrastructure investment.
On the road to mapping a more efficient transport future for Australian agriculture
What truck drivers do in clicks, scientists have done in data – tracking the great distances travelled by Australian produce from farm gate to market. It’s all to make for better infrastructure investment and make those long journeys more efficient and reliable.
What debris and the Indian Ocean told drift modellers about MH370 search area
The search for missing Flight MH370 in the Indian Ocean turned to oceanography to see what the science of surface drift modelling could suggest about the latitude of the splash site. The CSIRO final report has been delivered with more confidence than before of the likely search site - after testing on a real Boeing 777 plane part.
Modelling a more efficient future for cattle transport
The new TRANSIT tool developed by CSIRO is identifying ways to cut the costs of transporting cattle—offering solutions that would reduce the vast distances travelled and the numbers of trucks on the road. The tool will be applied beyond the livestock industry for use more broadly in the agricultural and logistics sectors.
