National Intelligent Transport Systems Strategy 2010-2015, Australia

The new Australian National Intelligent Transport Systems Strategy, released in July 2010, covers the timeframe from 2010 till 2015. It aims to enable seamless and consistent solutions, uniform application of standards, include all modes of transport, enable economies of scale and provide a coherent position of priority projects. The three main pillars to which the strategy is aligned are Safety, Mobility and Environment. The framework for evaluation and development of ITS initiatives presented in the paper has five components: 1) Architecture, Standards and tools; 2) Roadmap for coordinated development; 3) Projects; 4) Distributed ITS Centre of Excellence; and 5) Policy. Elaborate objectives and actions are phrased for each component.
The topic of Cooperative Mobility is recognised as a key development and a dedicated programme on it is announced in the strategy.
