Flinders in pole position for SA’s autonomous vehicle future

Revealing plans to develop a new generation of driverless vehicle – not just autonomous but also solar powered, Flinders University is in pole position to support Premier Jay Weatherill’s vision of South Australia at the centre of an autonomous vehicles industry.

Flinders University Vice-Chancellor, Professor Colin Stirling, hosted the Premier and Transport Minister Stephen Mullighan at Flinders’ new $120 million Tonsley innovation hub, for their announcement that South Australia will be the first state to legislate to allow driverless vehicles on the roads.

The Premier also announced the state’s first driverless vehicle conference, to be held on 5 and 6 November – the second day of which will feature driverless valet parking at Tonsley. See more.
