ACRI is to undertake research to understand better whether the addition of advanced warning through an amber phase is likely to (i) reduce the likelihood of failure to stop at red light signals, and (ii) be implemented in an effective manner at existing active crossings in Australasia.
ACRI together with Newcastle University is pleased to be are commencing research to address trackside worker safety by advancing understanding of robotic deployment opportunities. This project aims to develop a proof-of-concept remotely deployed track isolation/protection solution, seeking to remove the need for personnel to enter the danger zone before isolation…
