Introducing automated vehicles could dramatically impact the Australian and New Zealand travelling public’s driving experience and the industry’s .. Read more approach to road safety and road design. A growing range of vehicles already available in the market offer automated-steering functions enabled by Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS). Greater consistency and quality in pavement markings will benefit not only automated vehicles but also all road users. This webinar will focus on the outcomes of the Austroads research project, which was conducted to understand how longitudinal pavement markings affect automated steering functions and how existing design and maintenance practices could be improved. They will also present key recommendations to increase the road safety benefits that lane markings provide for advanced drivers assistance systems and what future changes road agencies can make to optimise road design, maintenance and operation for automated vehicles in the future. John Wall is the Austroads Program Manager, Future Vehicles and Technology and is recognised as one of Australia's leading specialists in the application of Intelligent Transport Systems for road safety.
