Vehicle positioning for C-ITS in Australia (background document)

This report discusses the potential positioning requirements needed to be addressed by Australian governments in order for Australia to commence positioning itself to be ready to be a fast adopter of C-ITS platforms and applications being researched and developed internationally. It is noted that the key regions where C-ITS applications are being researched and developed currently have access to a Space Based Augmentation System (SBAS) (Europe through EGNOS and USA through WAAS). SBAS coverage enables these regions to have access to high accuracy and integrity positioning systems. Australia does not currently have access to a wide area augmented positioning service, such as an SBAS. The key conclusion of this report is that Australia should continue to engage with international regions working on C-ITS. The Australian C-ITS program should encourage industry and government involvement with and observations of key international C-ITS projects working in the positioning area. The Australian C-ITS program should engage with the spatial industry to ensure that the needs of C-ITS are considered in the development of plans and strategies regarding positioning services for Australia. Of particular focus for C-ITS should be augmented GNSS coverage of Australia.
