The Australian Government is positioning the nation for safer roads through collaboration on high-tech vehicle and road systems via an agreement with the US State, Michigan.

Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) Australia said in a statement that it participated in the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between Assistant Minister to the Prime Minister, Andrew Broad, and Director Michigan Department of Transport, Kirk Steudle.

The signing took place at the University of Melbourne which has played a central role in advancing the transport technology agreement between the governments of Australia and Michigan, primarily through AIMES (Australian Integrated Multimodal EcoSystem), of which ITS Australia is an active supporter.

Activities in Michigan and Australia are leading the development of intelligent transport technology and the MOU supports links between AIMES, home to a live test bed on Melbourne city streets, and Michigan’s Mcity and American Center for Mobility off-road facilities that will be highly beneficial in progressing advancement in this field.

ITS Australia and Austroads, along with University of Melbourne, are included in the MOU as key to supporting the bilateral cooperation on connected, automated and autonomous vehicle technologies occurring across the Australian, and Michigan ITS communities.

At the signing of the MOU, ITS Australia President Dean Zabrieszach said that he was grateful for the opportunity this MOU presents to the Australian ITS industry. “In particular the chance to for us to create and shape global best practice for the future of intelligent transport, connected and automated vehicles,” he said.
