What was the RAC Intellibus® trial?

The RAC Intellibus® trial was Australia’s first and longest-running driverless vehicle trial. The trial started in 2016 and ended in June 2023, after nearly seven years on WA’s public roads.

The trial was primarily run along a 3.5km route in South Perth, with chaperones accompanying passengers for every ride to explain how the vehicle safely interacted with traffic, parked cars, cyclists and pedestrians.

The trial also visited Busselton and Geraldton, where more than 3,500 passengers were able to get a first-hand glimpse of the autonomous technology.
