RAC Intellibus tour

RAC is proud to be leading Australia’s very first Automated Vehicle Trial right here in Western Australia.

Since 2015, RAC has been working to test and evaluate a fully autonomous, electric shuttle bus and on the 31st August 2016, with the support from the WA State Government and the City of South Perth, we launched our Automated Vehicle Trial on public roads.

There have been many innovations and advances in transport technology over the last 100 years. Now, we are on the cusp of one of the biggest disruptions to transport as we know it.

Automated vehicle (AV) technology is rapidly advancing and these vehicles could deliver many benefits, including improved mobility and independence for many, and reduced crash risk and severity by removing human error from the driving task.

Our Trial is not a pursuit of technology for technology’s sake, but a commitment to ensure AV technology can be applied to solve urban and regional mobility challenges in Australia.

We want to ensure that our community, industry and government alike have an opportunity to experience an automated vehicle in a complex traffic environment while the technology remains largely in development.

By working together with our partners we’re one step closer to readying Australia for the safe transition to automated vehicles and our future world of safer, easier and cleaner mobility.

This is your chance to get creative and make a difference, working with small groups of individuals with support from locals to give context to the streets. We will be looking at making these streets more usable, friendly and vibrant places to be. And reclaiming them from the car!

Perth Busport is a key component of the CityLink urban regeneration scheme connecting Perth CBD with Northbridge. It is one of the most advanced passenger transport facilities in the world, working like an airport, with buses departing from different stands for each trip to maximise efficiency. This tour will provide a behind the scenes look into how the facility operates, including an overview of the dynamic stand management system and a visit to the control room.
