ITS Australia National Awards 2016, Call for nominations now open

26 May 2016


The excitement continues for ITS Australia this year with the 7th annual ITS Australia National Awards, to be held on Friday 14 October at Melbourne Cricket Ground, celebrating the culmination of the World Congress in Melbourne.
The ITS Australia National Awards are designed to recognise both industry expertise and promote the wider Australian ITS industry. A significant occasion in the ITS Australia calendar, the event will be attended by over 150 guests including the ITS World Congress Board from Asia Pacific, Europe and North America, ITS Global Ambassadors, ITS Australia members and local and international World Congress delegates.
The call for nominations is now open to all Australian businesses across five categories – Government, Industry, Research, Young Professional, and the highly-acclaimed Dr Max Lay Lifetime Achievement Award.
Susan Harris, Chief Executive Officer of ITS Australia said “The awards program is a celebration of excellence in intelligent transport systems and a chance to showcase the crème de la crème of the Australian ITS industry. For those lucky enough to be selected, it’s not only a fantastic way to gain recognition within the Australian market but often the start of international industry acknowledgement,” Ms Harris said.
“Winning a prestigious award in one of the five categories is the perfect platform to highlight organisational achievements in transport, safety, environment and community divisions.
“We continue to be amazed by the calibre of candidates and expect this year to be very competitive. The 2016 Awards are now officially open and we look forward to receiving nominations.”
Paul Angelatos, Chief Operating Officer for Seeing Machines, winner of the 2015 Industry Award for their Driver Distraction and Fatigue Intervention Technology for Commercial Fleets (SM Fleet) said: "Everyone at Seeing Machines is immensely proud of the SM Fleet technology - and have huge respect for the Australian ITS industry."
“As recipients of the Industry Award, we have received fantastic recognition for our work in Driver Distraction Technology, and it is something to showcase in front of our peers and leaders in the field.”
“Through this project, we have been at the forefront to actively contribute towards the goal of safer roads. By providing an effective solution to the growing problem of fatigue on Australian roads, this is something we continue to be incredibly proud of.
Intelligent transport system technology researchers, developers, infrastructure providers, manufacturers and young ITS professionals are encouraged to submit.
