Announcement of new federal Office of Future Transport Technologies welcomed.

ANCAP, Australasia's independent vehicle safety authority today welcomed the announcement made by Deputy Prime Minister, Michael McCormack MP, to establish a federal Office of Future Transport Technologies.

ANCAP Chief Executive, James Goodwin acknowledged the national leadership shown by the Government and encouraged a collaborative and coordinated approach to ensure international and state consistency of regulation.

"As we move to an automated transport future, building consumer, industry and regulator confidence is key," said Mr Goodwin.

"Automated vehicle technology is no longer the future, it is in today's new cars, and as the building blocks for full automation the establishment of a dedicated office shows national leadership and confidence."

“ANCAP is currently undertaking independent safety testing of Level 2 autonomous technologies including intelligent speed assistance, autonomous emergency braking and active lane-keep assistance.”

"Safety is a critical element which must carry through in all preparations for an autonomous future."

“A dedicated office should concentrate on the regulatory and legal framework but also prioritise Australian testing and research capabilities.”

“ANCAP is ready to assist the new office as the voice of the consumer, and continue to work closely with the Government to progress the work needed to prepare for autonomous transport systems,” Mr Goodwin added.
