ARRB Group (ARRB) would like to congratulate the Government of South Australia on the introduction of laws that will allow for the on-road trials of driverless cars.
Please click here for the full media release from South Australia’s Transport and Infrastructure Minister, Stephen Mulligan.
ARRB, together with our partners, Volvo Cars and the Government of South Australia, will be running the first ever demonstration of driverless vehicle technology on public roads in the Southern Hemisphere as part of the Australian Driverless Vehicle Initiative (ADVI).
Whilst these trials from the 7-8 November on Adelaide’s Southern Expressway do not require the legislative change as the roads will be closed, it is an important step for Australia to allow autonomous vehicles to be trialled on public roads in South Australia.
ARRB’s vision for ADVI is to accelerate the safe and successful introduction of driverless vehicles onto Australian roads.
The ADVI has been formed to provide a mechanism for industry, government and the community to have direct input into shaping how this happens.
We acknowledge the ongoing support of our partners listed below to the Australian Driverless Vehicle Initiative, who will support us in running additional demonstrations in 2016 and beyond.
