Bosch automated driving
Victoria has granted Bosch the state’s first Automated Driving System (ADS) permit for on-road testing of highly automated driving systems. Along with the ADS permit, the technology company was awarded $2.3 million from the Connected and Automated Vehicle (CAV) Trial Grants Program.

"Victoria is leading the nation in the future of on-road technology and this trial is an exciting step towards driverless vehicles hitting the road," says Acting Premier Jacinta Allan. "The tragic fact is that you’re five times as likely to be killed on a rural road (as) in the city. That’s why we’re rolling out a record roads investment in rural Victoria – and this is another way we can improve safety and save lives."

Bosch will begin testing its technology on high-speed rural roads later in 2019.
