Why was the trial important?

The RAC Intellibus® trial has helped the public and policy makers learn more about the potential impacts and opportunities of automated vehicle technology, including road safety benefits.

More than 90 per cent of road crashes are caused by human error, so if we can help safely transition to driverless vehicles sooner, hundreds of Australian lives could be saved and thousands of serious injuries prevented.

RAC will continue to strongly engage in this important policy space and encourage governments to prioritise and plan for a driverless future.
