NSW Smart Shuttle
What will we learn from the trial at Sydney Olympic Park
The Sydney Olympic Park trial will be the first precinct-based trial of an automated shuttle in Australia. The trial will focus on observing how automated vehicle technology can improve the mobility of customers and interact with other people within the precinct. To enable this trial we will work with our partners to understand what supporting technology and infrastructure is needed to operate an automated shuttle in this environment, how it interacts with other precinct users (pedestrians, cyclists etc.) and how it integrates with the broader transport network. We will also better understand passengers’ responses to this type of vehicle and the services it can enable, like on-demand transport in off-peak times. What we learn will be a direct input into our future transport planning and investment decisions to continue providing the best outcomes for transport customers across NSW. It will also help industry develop technology, products and services to deliver improved mobility for customers.
