Sebastien Glaser, Research Professor at Center for Accident Research and Road Safety gave us some highlights about the work done about smart transportation and mobility at Queensland University of Technology in Australia.

QUT - Queensland University of Technology


The Cooperative and Highly Automated Driving Safety Study is supported by the Motor Accident Insurance Commission, Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads, iMOVE Cooperative Research Centre and Queensland University of Technology (Centre for Accident Research and Road Safety – Queensland (CARRS-Q)).

Built by French research consortium VEDECOM, Automated Renault ZOE will be used to explore the safety of automated vehicles and allow road users to experience the technology across a number of future events and demonstrations.

The Vehicle

The Automated Renault Zoe was first demonstrated during a demonstration for six kilometers on open road. The ZOE2 navigated roundabouts, cross streets and driveways through Shailer Park in Brisbane’s south. The automated driving system relies on the RTMaps (Real-Time multisensor applications) software from Intempora.

"The use of RTMaps allowed us a fast delivery of this first demonstration in an unknown environment. RTMaps has facilitated the prototyping and testing of components using real world data collected during recording sessions on the road, ensuring a safe operation in automated mode.”

The Centre for Accident Research and Road Safety – Queensland (CARRS-Q) was established in 1996 as a joint venture initiative of the Motor Accident Insurance Commission (MAIC) and Queensland University of Technology (QUT) to address the enormous human, economic and social costs resulting from road crashes. CARRS-Q was founded by well-known and respected Emeritus Professor Mary Sheehan, and is currently headed by Professor Andry Rakotonirainy, with a very strong support team of leading academics. The Centre is situated within QUT’s Faculty of Health.

Key features:

  • Multidisciplinary team
  • High impact research influencing national and international policy
  • Strong linkages with government and industry
  • Committed to participating globally to reduce road fatalities and injuries
  • Award-winning postgraduate research education program

The Centre investigate people’s behaviour with the aim of devising countermeasures and informing policy to ensure the safety of all road users.ien Glaser, Research Professor
