In 2016, DCIS provided the students a business innovation challenge: use contemporary methods to inform the public about roads and their constantly changing conditions. The students had to apply lateral thinking to make the information relevant and user friendly especially on modern mobile devices. Four teams of CDU graduates participated in the challenge and demonstrated their concepts to a panel of judges from DCIS, CDU and DIPL. The standard of submissions were excellent and very innovative. To progress the initiative and involve the students in a business project, DCIS engaged five students over their semester break through local ICT businesses and set the challenge to progress their ideas and deliver a robust business solution. The ASNEX team and DIPL staff provided mentoring and direction to the students. The new site is now completed and provides a contemporary digital solution with up to date road obstruction information accessible across IT platforms including computers, tablets and mobile devices on Android and iOS devices. It is scheduled for release in 2017-18. This successful collaboration between NTG, CDU and the local ICT industry has assisted with career pathways for graduate students.
