Connected and Automated Vehicles

Paving the way for connected and automated transport

Vehicles that are connected and automated, including driverless vehicles, provide opportunities for safer travel, lower costs, more transport choices, and less road congestion.


ITS Australia, in collaboration with Australian State and Federal transport authorities and the transport industry, is actively working to advance Connected and Automated Vehicle (CAV) technology. This emerging transport technology has the potential to drastically improve the safety, productivity, and sustainability of our transport networks.

In Australia, the avoidable cost of congestion across our capital cities is $25 billion per year. By 2030, that annual figure is predicted to rise to as much as $40 billion. In the future, connected and automated vehicles, alongside digital infrastructure, will enable better utilisation of existing road assets, will reduce congestion, and will bring about revolutionary change in Australian road use.

Australia is a globally recognised testbed for connected and automated vehicle technology. Across the country, both government and private industry have embarked upon an ambitious and widespread series of connected and automated vehicle trials. These trials, using both cellular V2X and DSRC, are governed by a nationally consistent, regulatory and operational guidelines.
