TCA releases statement of corporate intent

Transport Certification Australia (TCA) has released its Statement of Corporate Intent for 2018-19 which presents TCA's key areas of focus and work program for the financial year.

"This 2018-19 work program incorporates a suite of key initiatives which respond to the needs of Australian Governments, regulators, providers and consumers of telematics applications,” said TCA CEO, Chris Koniditsiotis.

"These initiatives will expand the applications available through the National Telematics Framework – the government-approved digital business platform for telematics and related intelligent technologies – as well as introduce new features which can be used across applications of the Framework.

"Each of these initiatives will be underpinned by the common business rules and infrastructure contained within the National Telematics Framework – ensuring interoperability, standardisation and critically, an open
technology market,” he said.

Some of the key initiatives in TCA’s work program 2018-19 include: road infrastructure management application to allow road managers to collect road use data for asset planning and network management; road pricing pilots to support government and industry trials; and an On-Board Mass (OBM) program to provide a high level of assurance in the collection and use of mass information.

The program will also feature enhancements to existing applications such as Intelligent Speed Compliance (ISC) to allow different speed thresholds to be spatially defined and monitored; and the Intelligent Access Program (IAP) – specifically, the development of a business case for ministers with enhancements to the IAP application.

New features mentioned in the program include: real-time alerts to improve the availability of information to drivers, operators or regulators, where a high immediacy response is required; on-demand access to data to enable data to be accessed as and when required; telematics data exchange to describe the standard methods and mechanisms for the transfer of telematics data between entities; and interconennectivity of fatigue devices to allow different fatigue monitoring devices to ‘plug-and-play’ with different telematics offerings.

"Crucial to each of these initiatives – as well as the administration of operational applications – is consultation and engagement with the diversity of stakeholders (policy makers, providers and consumers) who use the National Telematics Framework to deliver improve outcomes," said Koniditsiotis.
