CAV2109 Evaluation of the European C-ITS platform including a Threat, Vulnerability and Risk Analysis (TVRA) 

Austroads is seeking to evaluate the C-ITS platform under deployment in Europe including a Threat, Vulnerability and Risk Assessment (TVRA) and where Australia and New Zealand (AnZ) may need to deviate from the European implementation. This is deemed necessary to gain an understanding of the system limits and threats posed to the C-ITS environment, so that appropriate measures can be identified to counter and mitigate those threats. The evaluation should identify risks to the C-ITS environment by isolating the vulnerabilities of the environment, assessing the likelihood of a malicious attack on those vulnerabilities, determining the impact that such an attack will have on the C-ITS environment and expanded to cover centre to vehicle services using cellular network for example, 3G/4G/upcoming 5G.

The ETSI TR 102 893 V1.2.1 (2017-03) - Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS); Security; Threat, Vulnerability and Risk Analysis (TVRA) was conducted in 2017 and it could be used as a framework for the development of this document which is covers the planned C-ITS deployment in AnZ.
AnZ deployment of C-ITS are anticipated in about 2019 and to align with C-ITS deployments in Europe.

Considering the fast pace of technology and cyber security threats, it seeks to reassess the threats, vulnerabilities and risks to Cooperative ITS latest concept described in ISO 21217 communications architecture standard. It also seeks to highlight any relevant system and information threats that are not covered by the 2017 assessment and assess the solutions that Europe Commission are developing under their C-ITS Platform and C-Roads programs.

 AAM6039 Estimating End of Usability Dates for Major ITS Assets on the Road Network 

The purpose of this project is to develop a criterion for determining the useful life of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) assets and use it to determine end of usability dates for major ITS assets on the road network.


The key tangible outputs are an Austroads Technical Report including:

  1. a review of what current functional needs the ITS assets are fulfilling
  2. development of criterion for determining the useful life of ITS assets
  3. guidance on establishing usability date for major ITS assets.

Closing Date: Tuesday 27 June 2017, 5:00 pm AEST.

CSP6052  Australia and New Zealand Roads Capability Analysis 2017-2027 

Road agencies are seeking to predict the future skills and capabilities they may need in the next 20 years to align with technological advances and declining revenues. It is recognised they also need to look beyond engineering skills in the future and look more broadly at skills in areas such as project, contract, commercial and business management, data analytics and control engineering and impacts of Cooperative ITS and Connected and Automated Vehicles (there may be others). The research needs to look beyond road agencies and include local government, industry, educational institutions and other Government departments.


Written reports which include:

  • Report of Project findings resulting from the analysis and research (including Literature review);
  • Gap Analysis Document;
  • Proposed infrastructure investment data, and potential future supply of civil engineering, project, contract, commercial and business management capabilities based on graduate, retirement and market data;
  • Future and shape of road authority projections;
  • A road map detailing the current state and where road authorities might be in 2027 and positioning the determination of capabilities based on several scenarios of a possible future road agency structure;
  • A Capabilities Modelling Document. 

Closing Date: Friday 23 June 2017, 5:00 pm AEST.
