  • Start Date: Tuesday, 03 July 2018
  • Location: Online, 1pm AEST
  • Organiser: Austroads

The emergence of Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) and Automated Vehicles (AV) applications is predicted to fundamentally change our mobility and deliver a range of road safety benefits.

Australasian road agencies are seeking to share knowledge and learnings so that we can accelerate toward the deployment of CAVs.

This webinar will give you an overview of progress and key lessons learnt from three major Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAV) trials.

  • Queensland’s Connected and Automated Vehicle Initiative’s C-ITS Pilot which is testing eight C-ITS use-cases on 500 vehicles on arterial and motorway roads in Ipswich.
  • NSW Centre for Road Safety Cooperative Intelligent Transport Initiative’s (CITI) project which is the first large scale evaluation of C-ITS applications in heavy vehicles.
  • ARRB/ConnectEast/VicRoads development of road certification criteria for partially automated vehicles on motorways through testing of a range of vehicles equipped with traffic sign recognition, lane keeping assistance, and adaptive cruise control.

Join in a live Q&A with our expert panel to ask questions about the trials.

No charge, but registration is essential.
