An untarnished image, presented by statistical data, proves that SA drivers toe the line when it comes to traffic discipline. Even though the number of vehicle especially cars, Utes, vans, buses, etc. registered has gone up by almost 22% as of today from the year 2010. However with increasing number of vehicles, younger riders, powerful and faster vehicles - incidents of road crashes are bound to rise.  The number of licences issued to new drivers this year has already surpassed

About the project

Have you ever been walking in your local park and wondered what’s actually living around you? Ever wondered why it sounds so quiet, no sign of native animals and birds? Well, the world, and Australia is rapidly urbanising, and with this often comes a loss of biodiversity as the environments and homes that native animals and birds share with humans are rapidly disappearing.

Fivemind is a land management and bushfire mitigation tool. Using Satellite imagery, the tool automatically detect changes in vegetation and human built structures within specific terrestrial areas. These change observations are combined with terrain and climate data to produce a spatial risk assessment. Land Managers and Fire Authorities can then capture and evaluate higher resolution imagery of areas of concern by deploying UAVs or Drones over flight paths generated by the tool.

Idea: Guiding drivers through dangerous situations via audio

Based on data collected from sensors in the car and open data available externally a current situation of the environment and the mental state of the driver is analysed and depending the analysis result audio feedback is provided to the driver. Audio may include music, noise, or voices. The audio will indicate if the driver is approaching a dangerous situation, influence the mood/state of the driver, e.g., calming down, prevent from falling asleep, pointing out an upcoming dangerous situation.

The Steamer Porthole -
As history researchers we have found information about the steamer captains and their
boats difficult to find. As this is an important part of South Australian pioneer history
we wanted to make a portal which helps solve this problem.

From the portal:
Travel the River Murray virtually, from your home, or go out and explore the places
and routes our river pioneers travelled.

Pathfinder, or Pathfindr as the kids spell it, is an alternative way to find the right course for you at TAFE SA.

Pathfinder replaces search with seek. At TCS we believe in choice, and with Pathfinder we add the ability to browsefor the course that matches you.

By answering a series of questions we narrow down the list of courses provided by TAFE SA from over a thousand, to a manageable number to browse.

Tribes is an app that uses Geo-Tagging. This app is based off of the 'Pokemon Go' engine app, but will make walking fun and educational for students that are on the go. Using GPS signals and Mobile Data, data on Aboriginal Information can just be a walk away from your house. This app was used with Significant South Australian Data and datasets from the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
