Guidelines for trials of automated vehicles in Australia

These guidelines set out criteria that must be addressed in any application for an automated vehicle trial. Because trials will differ in technology, scale and risk, some criteria may not be relevant to some trials. Trialling organisations must set out how they have addressed each criterion or explain why that criterion is not relevant for their trial. The national guidelines are intended to promote Australia as a testbed for automated vehicle technology. The guidelines are also intended to help trialling organisations to ensure safety when testing automated vehicle technology on Australian public roads. The guidelines aim to provide clear guidance on matters that should be addressed by trialling organisations as part of the trialling process for both light and heavy automated vehicles. The guidelines, a joint publication of the National Transport Commission (NTC) and Austroads, were first published in 2017. Since then, trials of automated vehicles have taken place in every Australian state and territory. This second edition of the guidelines published in 2020 followed a review and public consultation undertaken by the NTC.
