Intelligent Speed Adaptation ? Western Australia?s Demonstration Project
Submission Date: 2007
Advisory Intelligent Speed Adaptation (ISA) systems have been field-tested in a
number of countries, with good road safety benefits being shown. There is now
considerable interest within Australia for the implementation of ISA on a widespread
scale, to complement other speed management strategies.
In order to stimulate community interest and demand for advisory ISA, the Western
Australian Road Safety Council has commenced a major project to demonstrate the
utility of advisory ISA in a number of vehicles in WA. This paper outlines some of the
technical, liability and communication aspects of ISA that have been considered as
part of the WA trial.
