This project will establish a new future mobility research facility, named DynaMix-FM, at the Royal Automobile Club of Queensland (RACQ) Mobility Centre of Excellence in Mt Cotton, Queensland. The proposed facility includes an automated vehicle, remote control and supervision equipment. It will support research on new generations of connected and automated transport systems to anticipate the challenges of future transport systems. This future mobility proving ground will provide an innovative framework that integrates the physical testing environment with a digital testing environment, allowing them to be used together to enable the best attributes of each to be applied to solve important issues identified by the transport community.
The project aims to:
- Make critical contributions towards Australia taking a leap forward for Cooperative and Automated Transport Systems (CATS) adoption
- Facilitate rapid prototyping, experimentation and methodological innovation in vehicle automation and cooperation
- Enable vehicle manufacturers, transport regulators, researchers, and road safety stakeholders to collaboratively overcome the technical, human, policy and legal challenges of this transport revolution
