Safety assurance system for automated vehicles

The purpose of this project was to develop a safety assurance system to support the safe, commercial deployment and operation of automated vehicles at all levels of automation.

Project outcomes

In November 2018, ministers endorsed the outcomes of the Decision Regulation Impact Statement on safety assurance for automated driving systems, including the approach to ensuring safety of automated vehicles when supplied to market.

The Commonwealth Department of Infrastructure, Regional Development and Cities is implementing the agreed first supply recommendations.

We are now undertaking further work on options for the in-service safety of automated vehicles.
