Intelligent Speed Adaptation

In 2009, we trialled Intelligent Speed Adaptation (ISA). Community volunteers travelled more than 1.9 million kilometres using the technology. Trial results showed that using ISA technology could lead to a 19 per cent reduction in fatal road accidents and a 19 per cent reduction in serious injury accidents.
