Making Australia driverless ready with ARRB and iMOVE

by Australian Road Research Board on May 14, 2021

ARRB is pleased to announce a new CAV Readiness project in collaboration with iMOVE Australia.

iMove-Mock-1

Vehicle mock-up

The objective of this project is to establish a new automated probe vehicle as a test bed to enable applied research by the ARRB FTS team into deployment of CAVs in Australia. This will enable a step change in the capacity to understand, explore, and identify research opportunities for CAV deployment in Australia. ARRB would also like to thank ADVI core partner, Volvo Car Australia, for this ongoing support with this project.

Project background

Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAVs) are the subject of much interest worldwide in terms of the possibilities for safe, connected, and efficient mobility and freight movements.

There are many areas of opportunity for CAVs in Australia and only limited progress to build the required knowledge base and expertise to develop acceptance protocols and criteria, use cases and to drive implementation. ARRB initiated the Australia and New Zealand Driverless Vehicle Initiative (ADVI) in 2014, and since then we have led the coordination of efforts, international interactions and knowledge development to support CAVs in Australia.

This project seeks to build off ARRB initiatives in this area and to provide access to the ARRB Future Transport Systems (FTS) expert team to the integrated fitment of software and hardware of a new automated probe vehicle up to Level 4 (SAE-J3016), to enable a step change in our capacity to understand, explore and identify research opportunities for CAV deployment in Australia.

Project objectives

The objective of this project is to establish a new automated probe vehicle as a test bed to enable applied research by the ARRB FTS team into deployment of CAVs in Australia.

Establishment of the ARRB automated probe vehicle would enable new initiatives seeking to understand the gaps in data and interactions of automated vehicles with infrastructure in an Australian context.
