That Startup Show, Australia’s award-winning online TV series about startup culture, is branching out with a new six-part series called MOVE.

MOVE explores some of the new technology on the horizon in future transport, with the support of Transport for NSW. All six episodes premiere today – and you can check out the trailer right here:

With 68 per cent of the world’s population likely to move into cities by 2050, it’s inevitable that the world will need to address the potential issues this may create.

It’s also an opportunity for innovation in future transport technology, not only with new modes of transport such as autonomous vehicles and flying cars (for real), but to help improve current modes of transport to assist people with their mobility needs.

Filmed in front of a live audience at the historic home of transport, Australian Technology Park, MOVE is hosted by former Good Game host Stephanie Bendixsen.

The show features a strong line up of special guests such as renowned tech evangelist and recent Brand Ambassador for Mercedes Guy Kawasaki, and Greater Commissioner for Sydney Lucy Turnbull. It will also feature some of the leading thought leaders in the field, including Blackbird Ventures co founder and Zoox investor Niki Scevak, CMO of Sendle Eva Ross, CEO of Teleporter and 72 hour Self Driving Car Challenge Ben Sand, General Manager of Uber Susan Anderson, and AI “rockstar” Professor Toby Walsh. They will all be discussing different aspects of future transport technology.

MOVE also gets out into the field, showcasing world first innovations happening in Australia such as:

  • The NAVYA Autonomous Shuttle, the first fully autonomous vehicle of its kind in Australia
  • Intelligent train network at the new Rail Operations Centre, the first of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere
  • Ahoy App facilitating the experience of an on-demand ferry ridesharing service
  • World First flying racing car, the Alauda Airspeeder Mark I
  • “Smart Ute” Project, another world first prototype of a semi-autonomous ute with kangaroo detection & avoidance in development

MOVE seeks to genuinely explore how we will be moving in the not too distant future, who’s involved in building our future cities and what this will mean to our lives, beyond the hype.
