1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Innovation and Sustainable Development Committee to endorse the development of an Autonomous Vehicle Programme in collaboration with Strategic Partners.

Origin of Report

1.2       This report emanates from an agreement between the CEO’s of a number of city agencies and the Mayor.

2.   Significance

2.1       The recommendation in this report is of low significance in relation to the Christchurch City Council’s Significance and Engagement Policy.

2.1.1   The level of significance was determined by the limited number of people impacted, interest is limited to a small group of partners, and at the moment the impact on the community and council is low.

2.1.2   The community engagement and consultation outlined in this report reflect the assessment.

 

3.   Staff Recommendations

That the Innovation and Sustainable Development Committee:

1.         Endorse the development of an Autonomous Vehicle Programme in collaboration with Strategic Partners.

2.         Note that staff will brief the committee on progress every two months.

 

 

4.   Key Points

4.1       Autonomous Vehicles solutions are actively being pursued internationally and in New Zealand.

4.2       A number of city agencies are interested in collaborating in an Autonomous Vehicle Programme in Christchurch. 

4.3       From a preliminary review, an Autonomous Vehicle Programme would contribute to existing strategic goals.

4.4       The Steering Committee intend to develop a programme of Autonomous Vehicle activities in order to build Christchurch’s understanding, participation and if found to be a suitable solution contribute to the strategic goals of the Strategic Partners.

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1       Christchurch has been the venue of two Autonomous Vehicle launches, the first in New Zealand and the first New Zealand manufactured Autonomous Vehicle.

5.2       Following attendance at the Intelligent Transport Systems World Congress, her worship the Mayor Lianne Dalziel held a meeting on the 18th December 2017 with CEO’s from the following agencies (Strategic Partners):

·   Environment Canterbury

·   Christchurch International Airport Limited

·   Canterbury District Health Board

·   Ohmio Automation Ltd (subsidiary of HMI)

·   Christchurch City Holdings Ltd

·   Red Bus Ltd

5.3       From this meeting the following three actions were agreed:

·   To prepare this paper for the Innovation and Sustainable Development Committee;

·   To bring together a Steering Group of representatives from the Strategic Partners;

·   To review the strategic goals/visions for the City across all partners in order to identify if Autonomous Vehicles may be a new solution to achieve these goals.

5.4       The Steering Group met on Tuesday 16th of January.  At this meeting relevant Strategic Documents were shared.  In addition membership was discussed with agreement to invite Orion to join the Steering Group.

Strategic Context

5.5       A preliminary review of the Strategic Partners strategic context has been undertaken.  This has identified the following goals that Autonomous Vehicles may contribute to:

5.6       Christchurch City Council

·   Christchurch is a city of opportunity for all.

·   Open to new ideas, new people and new ways of doing things, a city where anything is possible.

·   Partnership - working together.

·   Vibrant and Thriving Central City

·   A well connected and accessible city

·   Sustainable use of resources

·   A great place for people, businesses and investment

·   Climate change leadership

·   Maximising opportunities to develop a vibrant, prosperous and sustainable 21st century city

·   Increase active, public and shared transport opportunities and use

·   Keep Christchurch moving forward by providing transport choices to connect people and places

5.7       Red Bus Ltd

·   To move more people more often

·   Our fleet, sites, IP and systems that keep our customers moving

·   Our Innovation and Sustainability programmes that get us ready for tomorrow

5.8       Christchurch International Airport

·   Recognises disruptive and emerging technologies such as autonomy provide an ever expanding set of opportunities to reshape customer experience, add new services and products to build a stronger future business.

·   Will prepare for innovation and disruptive technology with associated changes in customer experience and services by participating and partnering in innovation activities.

5.9       Christchurch Economic Development Strategy

·   A city that embraces and values creativity, innovation, social creativity and sustainable living

·   A city that takes risks.

·   Maximise the commercial value of innovation

·   A connected, engaging and thriving central city

·   A skilled and adaptive workforce

·   A place where it’s easy to do business and be innovative

·   The diagram below from the Christchurch Economic Development Strategy highlights there are a number of other interlinking strategies.  A complete review of these has not been undertaken however it is probable there are further goals and visions therein that Autonomous Vehicles may contribute too.

5.10    A review of the strategic documents of the Canterbury District Health Board, Christchurch City Holdings Ltd and ECan has not been undertaken due to time constraints.

5.11    From the preliminary review, it is the belief of the Steering Group that autonomous vehicles will contribute to the strategic goals/visions.  Further that an Autonomous Vehicle Programme be pursued.

Autonomous Vehicle Programme

5.12    The Steering Group are proposing that an Autonomous Vehicle Programme be developed seeking to achieve the following:

·   Understand the magnitude of the contribution Autonomous Vehicles may make to the strategic goals of the city.

·   Understanding the infrastructure and operating requirements of autonomous vehicles;

·   Understanding the interface between humans and technology in using autonomous vehicles;

·   Developing information that supports and demonstrates (including to relevant regulatory bodies) the safety of autonomous vehicles; and

·   Developing knowledge and expertise relating to the development and operation of autonomous vehicles and the associated technologies.

5.13    Conversations with the Strategic Partners to date have identified the following deployments as opportunities to include in the Programme:

·   Airport shuttle

·   Christchurch Hospital shuttle

·   Central City shuttle

5.14    In developing the programme, a number of matters will need to be worked through such as:

·   Contribution to strategic goals/vision

·   Funding model

·   Safety case

·   Research goals

·   Communications

·   Community involvement

·   Infrastructure requirements

·   Maintenance requirements

·   Operational requirements

·   Legal environment
