  • Kapsch TrafficCom’s connected vehicle technology project in Queensland, Australia wins the Connected and Automated Vehicle Award at the ITS Australia Awards 2024.
  • The project showcases enhanced safety in Australian roadworks through the use of cooperative intelligent transport systems (C-ITS) technology.

In Queensland, Australia, a project utilizing Kapsch TrafficCom’s cooperative intelligent transport systems (C-ITS) technology has been recognized with the Connected and Automated Vehicle Award at the ITS Australia Awards 2024. Spearheaded by the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR), the project aims to improve highway safety by implementing C-ITS technology in roadworks areas.

The technology employed portable C-ITS roadside stations to demonstrate enhanced safety in Australian roadworks, showcasing various safety-relevant messages directly into vehicles and reducing the risk of accidents in dangerous roadworks areas. The project involved a showcase in early May 2023 to demonstrate multiple common roadworks scenarios to prepare for wider deployment of the technology on state road networks.

Matthew McLeish, EVP for the APAC region at Kapsch TrafficCom, commended the team for their award-winning project, highlighting the collaboration with TMR and other partners as key to advancing the industry. The project’s success underscores the importance of C-ITS technology in making traffic safer for all stakeholders. Kapsch TrafficCom is also implementing similar technology along thousands of kilometers of German highways to enhance roadworks safety.
