Early findings from first Australian connected light, privately-owned vehicle trial
Submission Date: 2019
This Field Operational Test (FOT) involves 55 consenting members of the public having their light vehicles fitted with cooperative intelligent transport systems (C-ITSs) and telematics equipment as part of Transport for NSW’s Cooperative Intelligent Transport Initiative (CITI). CITI is the first Australian large-scale, long-term C-ITS initiative. The FOT included three safety alerts: harsh-braking ahead, intersection collision and red traffic light warnings. Participants were evenly split by gender (52.7% males), the majority aged 40-59 years (67.3%, 37/55), and 94.5% had held their driver licence 10+ years. End-of-study survey findings will be presented, including participants’ experience of the human-machine interface (HMI).
