Project Summary

Rapid technological developments in multiple fields have resulted in projections of the imminent introduction of autonomous vehicles (AVs) worldwide. AVs will radically alter current modes of transport and the ways cities function. For the many benefits of AVs to be realised, migration to a fully automated fleet needs to occur as rapidly as possible to minimise the inefficient adoption period during which a combination of automated and non-automated vehicles will share the roads. This project will generate data from consumers, policy makers, industry representatives, and secondary information sources to support evidence-based AV implementation strategies to optimise outcomes in Western Australia.
