The Ipswich Connected Vehicle Pilot will use vehicle-to-infrastructure communication technology to provide drivers with 6 different types of safety warnings. The type of safety warning that is provided will depend on the traffic conditions and vehicle behaviour. The following videos demonstrate how each of the safety warnings operate and what the driver will see from inside the vehicle.
This warning provides drivers with information about the current speed limit.
Red light warning
This warning alerts drivers there is a risk of driving through a red light ahead.
This warning alerts drivers there is a risk they are travelling at an unsafe speed for an upcoming traffic queue.
Turning warning for vulnerable road users
This warning alerts drivers to pedestrians or bicycle riders potentially crossing at an upcoming signalised intersection.
Road hazard warning
This warning alerts drivers that there is a risk they are travelling at an unsafe speed for a hazard up ahead, such as water on the road, road closures, or a crash.
Road works warning
This warning alerts drivers there is a risk they are travelling at an unsafe speed for upcoming road works, giving them time to slow down or change lanes. It also alerts drivers if they exceed the speed limit within the road works.
