Automated vehicles: are we ready? Internal report on potential implications for Main Roads WA

The purpose of this report is to highlight the potential implications for Main Roads of the introduction and wider use of Automated Vehicles (AVs) on Western Australian roads. It will inform Main Roads’ strategic decision-making process and position the organisation to appropriately respond to a potentially disruptive innovation, which could fundamentally change the transport landscape and society, and have profound implications for those agencies involved. As railways transformed the way we travelled in the 19th century, and the internal combustion engine or the motor car in the 20th, AVs will revolutionise transport in the 21st century. The impacts of automation on the transport system will be far reaching and felt well in advance of the arrival of the fully ‘driverless car’.
