AV Consulting: Welcome


Automated vehicles - sometimes known as automated vehicles, Connected Automated Vehicles, or 'driverless cars' - are the wave of the future. They will fundamentally change transport and society by reducing congestion and improving road safety, mobility and freight productivity. But current laws do not support their use on public roads and trial approvals are needed from local transport authorities. IMS has extensive experience in assisting transport operators to gain this approval. 

We help ensure you comply and get approval every step along the way. We specialise in preparing:

  1. Concept of operations

  2. Route risk assessment/ project hazard logs

  3. Safety management plan

  4. Vehicle test plan
