Road Congestion

Transport solutions

In a true move towards smart cities, SAGE delivers and develops technologies that are making accessible, integrated and transport systems of the future.

This involves future-proofing our road networks with the best intelligent transport systems (ITS) and communicative data technologies of today, and preparing for the onset of future technologies such as autonomous vehicles.


Building a smarter, more sustainable future 

As the world’s population and transport burden steadily increases, transport solutions are vital to addressing the challenge of our century.

Transport and smart cities initiatives are about moving people and goods more efficiently, affordably and sustainably in our cities. And SAGE is proud to be investing in this future.


How we do it 

SAGE’s Transport Sector delivers solutions across 7 sub-sectors:

End-to-End Transport Projects — Congestion Management — Autonomous Shuttles — Intermodal Transport —Data Analytics — Smart City Innovations — Operations and Maintenance.

Our solutions help improve road end user experience, reduce life cycle costs, lessen environmental impact, and prepare our transport systems for future technologies.

End-to-End Transport Projects

Engineering better transport corridors for today, while preparing for future technologies tomorrow

End-to-end project delivery of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) design, engineering, manufacturing, testing, commissioning, and service. SAGE is the national leader in ITS for Roads, Rail, Tunnels and Airports.

Congestion Management

Reducing congestion and pavement with smart technologies

We harness the latest technologies and industry partnerships to reduce road congestion, improve traffic management systems and future-proof corridors for future technologies.

Making transport accessible for everyone, anywhere, anytime

We work with industry, research and government to plan, trial and integrate technologies required for the uptake of autonomous vehicle (AV) technologies.

Our core focus is on creating transport systems that cater for aged care and disability groups and accessible services.

Intermodal Transport

Building the best public transport networks for our communities

Our technologies and partnerships enable inter-modal transport solutions across rail, train, bus, autonomous and electric vehicles, and ride share services for smart cities. 

SAGE's data capture technologies and product innovations like the Matilda Smart Transit Hub that connects with autonomous shuttles, will provide councils with the building blocks to solve the immediate challenge of first-mile – last mile services.

Data Analytics

Enhancing communities' quality of life through open data insights

Along with Sister company Nukon, we capture, clean, integrate and analyse data to help road authorities and city planners make better data-backed decisions. Importantly we operate on an open data philosophy, whereby data is owned by the client.

Smart City Innovations

Positively changing the way people live and move in urban environments

Open data and connectivity is what will drive the futures' smart cities.

We harness the latest communication networks and technologies to deliver smart city infrastructure such as sustainable smart parking, smart lighting and IoT device enablement.

Operations and Maintenance

Supporting the systems that make peoples lives easier

Building on SAGE's industrial automation Service offering, we provide transport systems with 24/7 service support, ongoing maintenance, and centralised management via our National Operations Centre.

Why SAGE is the best choice for your transport needs

We're a one-stop shop

SAGE Automation is the only Australian company with the capability to deliver an end-to-end solution nationally, from conception to commission.

Why SAGE is the best choice for your transport needs

We deliver the best thinking

We’ll bring our considerable experience, our deep and broad pool of expertise, our tried-and-tested methodology and our best thinking practices to create a solution that doesn’t just address current needs, but also future demands.
We are committed to staying at the forefront of Intelligent Transport System (ITS) technologies and bringing you the very latest innovations in the field, such as real-time travel capture with bluetooth communications and thermal video incident protection cameras that are activated when an incident occurs in low-visibility conditions. We are also equipped to bring you the very latest in Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (CITS) technologies, allowing road users and traffic managers to share information, thereby significantly improving traffic congestion and driver safety and comfort, as well as preparing roads for the uptake of driverless cars.

Why SAGE is the best choice for your transport needs

We'll be there when you need us

SAGE provides ongoing training and 24/7 support services, significantly extending the life cycle of your project and ensuring you get the maximum value out of your investment. 

Why SAGE is the best choice for your transport needs

We are serious about safety

We know safety is of paramount importance when undertaking large transport projects. That is why SAGE is tri-certified with international certifying body DQS for Quality, OH&S and Environmental Management Systems, complying with ISO9001:2000, AS3000 (Electrical), ISO14001 (Environmental) and AS4801 (OH&S) standards. We will ensure your project has built-in redundancies and is fully compliant with all safety standards – especially crucial when undertaking particularly dangerous infrastructure projects such as tunnels and rail.

Why SAGE is the best choice for your transport needs

We employ diversity

SAGE is also passionate about investing in the local community and promoting diversity through our graduate programs and hiring practices.
