AUSTRALIA: ARRB to test driverless cars this November

Driverless cars will be tested on Australian roads for the first time in November this year says the country's national independent road research agency, ARRB Group.

Driverless cars will be tested on Australian roads for the first time in November this year says the country’s national independent road research agency, ARRB Group.

Through its Australian Driverless Vehicle Initiative, ARRB is supporting [State] governments in bringing together leading local and international experts from industry and academia, including technology partners Telstra and Bosch, as well as automotive partner Volvo, to run Australia’s first driverless vehicle demonstration trials.

By applying international research to the local road environment, the partner organisations will together seek to understand what is required to make driverless technology appropriate for Australian roads and safe for road users.

Supported and hosted by the South Australian Government, the Australian-first trials of automated vehicles will coincide with a Driverless Vehicle Conference to be hosted by the State from 5-6 November.

“The advent of driverless cars is an opportunity to foster technological innovation and revive Australia’s manufacturing industry – the South Australian Government has been quick to recognise this,” said ARRB group managing director, Gerard Waldron.
