Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) is the name given to combinations of sensors, communications systems and computer technology to combat traffic congestion and improve road safety. They are set to play an increasing role in the traffic systems of the future. Some aspects of ITS have direct relevance to motorcycle safety. ARRB Group, Australiaâ€™s leading centre for road and traffic research, is undertaking work on behalf of VicRoads to investigate motorcyclistâ€™s views on some of these new options. We need to speak to motorcyclists of all ages, all skill levels and riding all types of machines. Riders are asked to attend a session for approximately 60-90 minutes. Each of the new technologies will be explained using pictures and diagrams, and motorcyclists will be asked for their views on each of the technologies â€“ whether they themselves would find them useful, how they might affect their riding, and what possible problems they can see with them. Riders will be paid $50 for participating. Most sessions will be held at ARRBâ€™s offices at 500 Burwood Highway, Vermont South. Sessions will be held most weekday evenings at 5.30 or 7.00 over the period December 7th to 15th. Anyone who is interested should phone Maryse on 9881 1513 between 9.30 and 11.30, or between 2.00 and 4.30, as soon as possible and before December 15th to arrange a time. Alternatively, you can e-mail Maryse.firstname.lastname@example.org and leave contact details and dates and times when you can come, and we will call you back. Volunteers will be asked to complete a short questionnaire over the phone to help us allocate them to groups of similar riders. If groups would prefer, if they can provide a venue and at least six discussion group members of the required type, we can come to you during that period. We thank you very much for your interest and participation, and look forward to hearing from you.
