ransport Certification Australia (TCA) is a national government body responsible for providing assurance


in the use of telematics and related intelli- gent technologies, to support the current and emerging needs of Australian Gov- ernments and stakeholders. TCA is a ‘cross-cutting’ organisation that


works across different policy streams, sur- face transport modes, and government and industry sectors. The body’s vision is to be the Australian leader of Advice, Accreditation and Administration serv- ices, and to be an essential partner to gov- ernment organisations to achieve public outcomes through the use of telematics and related intelligent technologies.


THE AUTOMOTIVE WORLD IS CHANGING, AND SECURITY NEEDS TO KEEP UP Connected and cooperative vehicles and intelligent transport systems are a criti- cal part of the disruptive transformation occurring to our vehicles, roads, cities and technologies – including automated vehicles, smart cities and smart infra- structure, and the Internet of Things. They have been developed as a way to


deliver a safer and more efficient trans- port network that is less congested and more environmentally friendly. What all these transformations have in


common is the growing – and unprec- edented – convergence of the physical and digital spheres. If managed cor- rectly, they have the ability to enhance our quality of life.


Together, these transformations con-


stitute a paradigm shift. As with any new technology that facilitates economic and social change, safeguards protect the public interest and enable innovation in equal measure. It is in Australia’s highest interests to


adopt C-ITS in a manner that delivers safe, secure, and commercially and operation- ally sustainable outcomes. The technology for connected vehi-


cles, Smart Cities and the Internet of Things either already exists or will soon be available, but this doesn’t mean it will work the way want it to work and it doesn’t mean it will deliver the best results for the majority of people. Technology is only one factor.
