In-service safety for automated vehicles

shape

We are developing a framework to assure the safe operation of automated vehicles while they are in service.

Background

In June 2020 ministers agreed to work towards establishing a national approach to regulating automated vehicles when they are commercially deployed on our roads.

Ministers agreed the approach will include a national regulator and a national law, supported by a general safety duty.

We are working, in partnership with Australian governments, to further develop the approach and report back to the Transport and Infrastructure Council for decisions on implementation in 2021.
