Australia moves another step closer to driverless vehicles

The Qld Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) has been preparing for the Ipswich Connected Vehicle Pilot, a trial of Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) technologies, which will see around 500 vehicles retrofitted with C-ITS devices from late 2019.

The Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) have embarked on an exciting project to trial Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) technologies. The Ipswich Connected Vehicle Pilot will consider how C-ITS can makes roads and road users safer, and contribute towards a vision of zero road deaths and serious injuries on the state’s roads. As part of the Pilot, TMR will develop Australia’s first Security Credential Management System (SCMS) for C-ITS (Vehicle 2 Everything – V2X). The pilot will also act as a feasibility study, laying the technical foundations for the future generation of smart transport infrastructure.

As part of our commitment to empowering the development of connected and automated vehicle technologies in Australia, we are supplying TMR with 4G LTE data connectivity for over 500 vehicles and roadside stations, during what will be a 9-month trial commencing in late 2019.
