About the Queensland CAV trial

The Queensland CAV program is trialling connected and automated vehicles (CAVs) and automated technology on the road network in South East Queensland.

The trials are being run with input from Brisbane City Council and Department of Transport and Main Roads, the Queensland Centre for Accident Research and Road Safety, Queensland Trucking Association, Queensland Police and the Royal Automobile Club of Queensland.

Partially automated vehicle trials

In October 2018 we launched a short-term trial of partially automated vehicles on the road network in and around Brisbane, including the Clem Jones & Legacy Way Tunnels, Airport Link, Centenary, Gateway, Inner City Bypass, Legacy Way, Logan and Pacific motorways.

Audi, BMW, Jaguar Land Rover, Mercedes, Toyota and Volvo are supplying the cars for these trials.

The purpose of the trial is to test the operation the latest driver assist technology (e.g. lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control and traffic sign recognition) and how it responds to Brisbane road infrastructure.

Trial data is being captured via our Australian-first, purpose-built app that tracks, records and measures all interactions between CAVs and road infrastructure.
