The future of transport is coming!

The way we use cars, and how our mobility needs are met, will change radically over the next couple of decades. That is why we have developed a survey to find out what Queenslanders know already about both cooperative and automated vehicles, and how they might use these technologies when they become available.

Everyone who completes the survey before 26 October 2017 has the chance to win one of 10 Myer gift cards worth $50. The survey is open to all Queensland licence holders.

The results of the survey will guide the development of messaging and materials designed to increase people’s understanding around new vehicle technologies, and encourage participation in the upcoming Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) trials.

The Cooperative and Automated Vehicle Initiative (CAVI) is a TMR-led project designed to help our department prepare for vehicles with cooperative and automated technologies on our road network.

For Queenslanders, rapidly developing cooperative and automated vehicle technologies have the potential to significantly reduce crashes and resulting gridlock, as well as reduce vehicle emissions and fuel use over the coming decades.

As part of the CAVI project, plans are underway to deliver the C-ITS pilot in Ipswich in 2019. The pilot will involve around 500 vehicles retrofitted with C-ITS technologies, interacting with roadside C-ITS technologies and cloud-based messaging to enable the vehicles to ‘talk’ to each other.

Testing will also be conducted with a small number of cooperative and highly automated vehicles on both public and private roads in South-east Queensland.

Our interest in testing cooperative and highly automated vehicles is to better understand the implications for our infrastructure and Queensland road users, and the improvements to safety when vehicles can ‘talk’ to infrastructure and other vehicles.
