The scenario for this assessment is a hypothetical future system that helps governments to manage

traffic flow in municipal localities. You should imagine that the local Road Traffic Authority has put

out a Request for Proposals (RFP) for appropriately qualified consultants to undertake a body of

work that would help to scope the data requirements for such a system. With your success in your

Torrens University Australia degree so far, and other similar projects that have garnered you some

sustained success in the eyes of the profession and community, you have been shortlisted among no

less than 10 other consultancies. There are expectations from them, then, as to the standard of

report you will produce.

While there has been a tremendous amount of attention given in the media and in scientific circles

to the progression and uptake of autonomous vehicles, their widespread adoption has not yet

proliferated: there are reasons for this that you will need to take into account in your deliverable.

The local Road Traffic Authority is, with several other bodies, lobbying the government on what it

can manage in the emergent world of technological change and the capability of artificial

intelligence. An alternative model has been proposed that the Road Traffic Authority believes to be

preferable to autonomous vehicles and it involves a system that would control all non-autonomous,

driverless vehicles through a traffic management and routing system.

For such a system to work, it is necessary that there be no autonomous vehicles on the road, and AIenabled as well as human drivers would be included in such a ban. With the remaining nonautonomous, driverless vehicles the only ones left on the road, the system would then be allowed to

control the flow and routing of each and every vehicle by manipulating its speed, direction and

ultimate route to the passengers’ intended destination. The system would control all traffic lights,

lane changing, slowing and acceleration of the vehicles.

The benefits of such a traffic management system are thought to be enormous as the hope is that

the most effective routes can be calculated and that the most efficient traffic flow between those

destinations is streamlined, congestion minimised and safety on the roads improved. But the system

is ambitious and requires a lot of forethought and design elements fed into it before it could be

seriously considered by the government of the day. The Road Traffic Authority seeks consultation

on what the data requirements of such a hypothetical system might be.
