Transurban completes automated truck trial

Transurban’s recently completed automated truck trial tested the performance of an automated truck on urban motorways (including CityLink) in Melbourne.

This was the first time a highly automated truck (a truck designed to drive without driver input) was tested in live traffic conditions on public motorways in Australia.

It was also the first time Transurban tested the benefits of sharing their roadside technology data (for example, from road sensors and speed-limit signage) with a truck’s automated driving system (ADS).  

Real-time data from Transurban systems was fed directly to the truck, and measuring how well this data helped the truck’s ADS understand road and traffic conditions beyond the reach of its own sensor data.
