The iMOVE CRC is a consortium of 45 business, research and government partners which, through collaborative projects, will use data and emerging technology to improve the ways Australia moves.
Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) will enable vehicles to communicate with other vehicles and infrastructure. The driver of a vehicle would then be alerted about potential hazards or be provided with traffic information.
To be delivered by Queensland Department of Transport & Main Roads, this project’s objectives are as follows:
- validate the impacts and safety benefits of C-ITS, and user perceptions
- demonstrate technologies and build public awareness and uptake
- grow government’s technical and organisational readiness
- encourage partnerships and build capability in private and public sectors.
Involving 500 participants, this project aims to contribute to the establishment of a standardised methodology, support the collection of the data through participant management, and evaluate this core data set. This data will be used by transport agencies – local, state and federal – to support the investment of infrastructure, both digital and physical, that supports emerging C-ITS. In the future, this data and results could also be used by others to perform, compare or supplement an evaluation.
