The Ipswich Connected Vehicle Pilot used vehicle-to-infrastructure communication technology to provide drivers with 6 different types of safety warnings. The following videos demonstrate how each of the safety warnings operated and what the driver experienced from inside the vehicle.
This warning provided drivers with information about the current speed limit.
Red light warning
This warning alerted drivers if there was a risk of driving through a red light ahead.
This warning alerted drivers if there was a risk they were travelling at an unsafe speed for an upcoming traffic queue.
Turning warning for vulnerable road users
This warning alerted drivers to pedestrians or bicycle riders potentially crossing at an upcoming signalised intersection.
Road hazard warning
This warning alerted drivers that there was a risk they were 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 alerted drivers if there was a risk they were travelling at an unsafe speed for upcoming road works, giving them time to slow down or change lanes. It also alerted drivers if they exceeded the speed limit within the road works.
