During their trials, the partners tested applications involving vehicles talking to infrastructure (such as traffic lights), vehicles communicating with other vehicles, and vehicles talking to vulnerable road users such as cyclists and pedestrians. In detail, the applications included alerting a driver to roadworks ahead, giving green light priority to high priority vehicles, and testing optimal green light timing where the vehicle is informed of the optimal speed to approach a traffic light so that that they get a green light when they arrive, therefore allowing a more continuous flow of traffic.
According to Andrew, this was the first phase of Telstra’s project with additional trial phases lined up for testing Vehicle-to- Vehicle and Vehicle-to-Vulnerable (bicycles and pedestrians) within the coming months.
