Arup’s transport specialists will advise and undertake on behalf of Austroads, their study into the Implications of in-vehicle Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR) Systems for Road Operators. The study will inform guidance for Australasian road authorities in preparing for the arrival of Connected and Autonomous vehicles.
Austroads is the peak organisation of Australasian road transport and traffic agencies. Austroads study’s and Guides inform the design, construction, maintenance and operation of the road network in Australia and New Zealand. All road agencies across Australasia have adopted the Austroads Guides. The project combines real world connected and automated vehicle (CAV) trials and research of world best practice for TSR technology. Prototype and commercially available vehicles will be tested throughout November 2017 at the AARC test track in Anglesea as well as in Melbourne, Sydney and Auckland. The trials will feature the involvement of a range of vehicle manufacturers and will help prepare Australian and New Zealand roads for the future of driverless vehicles.
