National Road Safety Action Grants Program - Technology and Innovation

ClosedGrant Closed: 31st of March 2024 - 11:30 pm Value: $20,000 to $1.5 Million Run By: Australian Government Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, Communications and the Arts Further Information: https://www.grants.gov.au/Go/Show?GoUuid=26d9229f-3259-4dc6-bb98-80dd787e49bb

The road safety environment is evolving. New and emerging technologies, such as Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAVs) have the potential to improve transport safety, productivity, accessibility and sustainability. Other developments, such as the emergence and rapid take-up of personal mobility devices such as e-scooters introduce alternate ways to travel, and increase options for multi-modal transport. However, these advancements are also increasing the complexity of the road safety landscape, particularly in how they use and interact with the road and other road users.

The Australian Government is committed to supporting the continued development of new road safety technologies, as well as innovative solutions that meet the road safety challenges arising from new technologies, and overcome human fallibility.

The aim of this funding stream is to:

  • ▪ examine and conduct research into the effectiveness of new road and vehicle safety technologies.
  • ▪ fund projects to deliver new road safety technologies, innovations or initiatives.

The intended outcomes of this funding stream are:

  • ▪ advancements in technologies, innovations or initiatives that lead to a reduction of fatalities or serious injuries on our roads nationally.
  • ▪ developments in road and vehicle safety technologies and initiatives specific to the Australian context.

Any outcomes of this grant funding will be reported in the National Road Safety Annual Report delivered in the fourth quarter annually.
