After 12 months total testing, including 6 weeks of trials involving the general public, the autonobus driverless shuttle pilot project has been completed.
This iMOVE research project involves the collection and analysis of detailed data to implement and validate advanced algorithms, to support the early identification of the onset of congestion and identify how best to mitigate its potential impact.
Transurban’s Connected and Automated Vehicle trials took place on closed and open roads in late 2017, and it has just published its report on the trial, as well as beginning to make changes to roads and signs based on the report’s recommendations.
From April 23 through to July 2018 the autonobus driverless shuttle at the Bundoora campus of La Trobe University is available for the public to experience, and provide feedback.
The Victorian Government has made changes to its Road Safety Act that will make it easier to conduct on-road trials of automated vehicles.
Melbourne is soon to become the second Australian trial spot for HMI’s Autonobus, transporting the general public at the Bundoora campus of La Trobe Uni.
