Lessons learned from automated vehicle trials in Australia

This research report is a condensed version of a report developed for infrastructure and transport ministers to collect learnings from four years of automated vehicle trials in Australia. The report was informed by engaging with government and industry involved in the trials. Lessons are presented about the trials framework, which consists of importation, trial application and national trial guidelines; the operation and outcomes of trials themselves; and how trials are chosen and evaluated. To move to a next stage of trials in Australia the report notes a number of areas that the NTC, Commonwealth and state and territory governments and Austroads can focus on. There is also an opportunity to build on the learnings in this report to take a holistic look across trials, regulation, infrastructure and public attitudes to assess Australia’s readiness for automated vehicles when they become ready for commercial deployment.
