Lexus Australia experience: C-ITS driving in real traffic demonstration

A real-life experience in a Lexus C-ITS enabled vehicle. Lexus Australia has been trialling advanced vehicle communication of safety messages through C-ITS technology. This research examines the capability and benefits of very quick data exchange between vehicles, between vehicles and traffic light equipment and receiving important road network updates.

Demo is a 20-30 min drive in a Lexus C-ITS enabled vehicle through Brisbane CBD to experience advanced vehicle communication of safety messages within the Ipswich Connected Vehicle Pilot (ICVP) in Queensland.

Participants on this demo will learn about:
