Raby Bay trial ends

The Redlands Coast Smart Mobility Trial was a joint initiative between Redland City Council and RACQ.

Following a successful trial of the RACQ Smart Shuttle on Karragarra Island from November 2019 to May 2020, the following phase trialled the use of the driverless technology in Raby Bay, Cleveland.

From 26 November 2020 until 26 June 2021, the autonomous vehicle connected the popular destinations of Raby Bay Harbour with Raby Bay Foreshore Park, providing a free public passenger service along Masthead Drive.

The trial aimed to:

  • Test the driverless technology in a more complex live-traffic environment.
  • Capture feedback from those travelling on the autonomous vehicle as passengers as well as those sharing the road with it.
  • Help transport planners understand the physical and digital infrastructure required to enable and support the ongoing operation of autonomous shuttles.
  • Help transport planners understand the role that autonomous vehicle technology might play in meeting future transport needs.

The Raby Bay trial was the second phase of the first ever deployment of a long-term on-road autonomous vehicle trial in Queensland.
