The Omni-Aware project used multiple LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) sensors to build continuous spatial awareness of pedestrians, cyclists, cars, buses and trucks at a road location. This Australian-first project was part of a Connected and Automated Vehicles trial, funded by the Victorian Government’s Towards Zero Road Safety Action Plan, to equip a crash hot-spot intersection with LiDAR sensors developed for Automated Vehicles. The project explored the technology’s capability to intervene with hazard warnings ahead of potential problems (at an off-road trial site) and produce detailed information of vehicle and vulnerable road user movements, near-misses and crashes for analysis to help prevent future crashes (at the on-road trial site). Testing was conducted at an off-road site in September 2019, which was followed by installation at an on-road site in November 2019. The project results are based on the analysis of six months of data from this installed intersection.
