South Australia to trial driverless cars

AusBN – The South Australian government has announced that Adelaide will host the country’s first driverless car trials in November.

The autonomous vehicles will be tested on the Southern Expressway at Tonsley Innovation Park and at Adelaide Airport.

Independent research body ARRB Group will oversee the trials, in collaboration with engineering giant Bosch, telecommunications company Telstra, car manufacturer Volvo and the SA government.

SA Premier Jay Weatherill told the Herald Sun newspaper: “This trial presents a fantastic opportunity for South Australia to take a lead nationally and internationally in the development of this new technology and open up new opportunities for our economy.”

Earlier this year, Weatherill said he wants to introduce legislation by the end of 2015 that will allow the use of driverless cars on South Australia’s roads.

Vodafone launches discounted mobile products

AusBN – Vodafone Hutchison Australia has announced plans to launch heavily discounted mobile products in Australia.

The company hopes that the new products will help it tap into the small business market to make A$1 billion a year by 2019.

Around 6% of the $4.5 billion small-business market is currently held by Vodafone but the company is looking to increase this to 18% by 2019.

Vodafone Australia general manager Stuart Kelly said: "That's an aggressive number to go after in the market.

"I think the value of the Australian [small business] market will continue to grow and it will surpass the $5 billion mark [within four years]."
