“ To accelerate the safe and successful introduction of driverless vehicles onto Australian roads”Back to top
Self-driving vehicles will make driving easier, allow people to be more productive and offer greater mobility to a wider range of people than ever before. They will also help improve road safety, reduce emissions, and ease congestion. As a result, self-driving vehicles will provide significant economic, environmental and social benefits, including improving social inclusion.
The key thrust of ARRB’s Driverless Vehicle Initiative is to build momentum by rapidly exploring the impacts and requirements of this new technology in a truly Australian context and making recommendations on ways to safely and successfully bring self-driving vehicles to Australian roads.
To do this ARRB will raise public awareness through live demonstrations involving government, industry, research entities and the media. The intention is to provide an avenue to showcase the involvement and contributions of collaborating partners involved in this important initiative.
As a cooperative of its members, ARRB will work with government, industry and academia to investigate and ultimately identify options and outcomes to help inform the development of robust national policy, legislation, regulation, facilities and operational processes to bring self-driving vehicles safely to Australian roads.
A staged program of activity is planned, which will deliver valuable outcomes within agreed timeframes. The major process is as follows:

The Driverless Vehicle Roundtable was held in Sydney on 22 October 2014 at the 26th ARRB Conference where senior executives from government, industry, peak bodies, universities and other relevant organisations attended to discuss what steps are needed to enable the effective introduction of self-driving vehicles into Australia.
The Roundtable event was highly successful in bringing decision makers together from a range of different backgrounds to promote open, high-level and positive discussion on the topic.
The Workshop Report - Readiness for Self-driving Vehicles in Australia collates the points raised at the Driverless Vehicle Roundtable and provides some analysis of the considerable task in hand to ready Australia for self-driving vehicles so as to take full advantage of the many benefits.
