The purpose of this project is to identify gaps in current physical and digital road infrastructure to support the operation of automated vehicles on key highways and freeways in Australia and New Zealand

This Module 4 investigates emerging asset attribute and condition capture techniques, such as data capture from sensors in vehicles, to determine how this may supplement or potentially replace some asset condition information collected by road agencies.

Join us for a free webinar on Thursday 7 November 2019, 1pm AEDT for an overview of the study by John Wall, Andrew Somers and Anthony Germanchev.
