Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAVs) will consume and create vast quantities of data of many different types. What role does data supplied by road operators play in this future ecosystem?

Is Open Data the right mechanism to use?

In this webinar, you’ll learn about the strategic context on the supply of road operator data for connected and automated vehicles use in Australia and the recommended next steps to navigate through this developing field.

Connected and automated vehicles are anticipated to rely heavily on data from their sensors for vehicle control actions such as acceleration and braking. External data complements this by assisting dispatch, route and path planning as well as providing a horizon of expected conditions.

Road operator data that may be of interest to connected and automated vehicles includes data from traffic signals and Managed Motorways systems, data on roadworks, incidents and special events and data on traffic restrictions such as speed limits.

Join in a live Q&A with our expert panel to have your questions answered.
