The NHVR has announced a partnership with technology company SenSen to deliver what it calls rapid deployable Artificial Intelligence (AI) solutions using vehicle mounted cameras, a drone and solar powered trailers as part of road safety risks.
NHVR CEO Sal Petroccitto said the contract was the next step into delivering new and innovative ways to make Australian roads safer for everyone.
“It’s timely and important that we use innovative thinking to make our roads safer,” Sal Petroccitto said.
“We’ve now taken the next step to trial mobile camera technology, across the NHVR’s Southern Operations region – including South Australia, Tasmania and Victoria.
“These cameras will assist the NHVR’s officers in a risk-based approach to safety – ensuring our officers are targeting the biggest road safety risks.
“On the flip side, smarter camera technology will also help in identifying operators who are doing the right thing, who can then expect to be less regularly intercepted by the NHVR.
“Having the best, most up-to-date information, including information gathered through cameras, helps us to make better decisions about law reform, safety and productivity programs that will make our roads safer for everyone.”
