  • Foreword In 2005, the Hon Ian Macfarlane MP, Minister for Industry, Tourism and Resources, launched the Inaugural Australian Telematics Capability Register, which showcased a range of Australian companies and organisations in the rapidly emerging automotive and transport telematics sector.

    The Minister’s foreword noted that ‘telematics is a combination of wireless, voice and data communication systems aimed at providing drivers with safety and travel information, including vehicle tracking, real-time traffic data, emergency aid and entertainment from a central service centre’.

    Most importantly, telematics products and systems provide the tools by which contemporary issues such as traffic congestion, safety and security can be addressed, particularly in the urban areas of Australia. They also provide a mechanism to reduce vehicle emissions, to generate fuel savings, to value-add to our local automotive OEM industry and to stimulate new export activity.

    The leadership of AEEMA in liaison with ITS Australia, the continuing engagement of the private sector, the facilitation role played by the Australian and Victorian Governments in support of the Electronics Industry Action Agenda, and the strong collaboration demonstrated within the Telematics Cluster environment; have all been compelling features of the Australian Telematics Industry Initiative.

    This second Australian Telematics Industry Capability Register extends well beyond the scope of the inaugural Handbook, both in terms of the number of companies listed, as well as the diversity and breadth of national capabilities in this rapidly evolving sector. The significant increase in the number of companies in the telematics value-chain in Australia is one benchmark of this high-growth industry’s successful development.

    Finally, the support of AusIndustry, which provided the funds for mapping the Australian Telematics Industry under the Industry Cooperative Innovation Program (ICIP) project ‘Defining the Australian Telematics Industry’, has made this initiative possible.

    The Australian Telematics Industry Capability Register provides one of the foundations for the further development of a new employment-generating and wealth-creating industry for Australia.

    The Australian Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers’ Association Ltd (AEEMA) is the peak national industry association in Australia representing over 400 infrastructure providers for Australia’s ICT, electronics, and electrical manufacturing industries. AEEMA is leading a national strategic plan aimed at developing further Australian capabilities in contract electronics manufacturing of complex products, integrated systems for home networking and transport telematics. The Association is closely linked with the principal Australian R&D institutions specialising in a wide range of ICT technologies that include electronics, photonics, nanotechnology and automotive electronics.

    The Australian Telematics Industry Initiative was established in early 2004 to develop the emerging telematics industry in Australia. It has been extremely successful in bringing together contributing sectors such as wireless/ICT, electronics and automobile/transport. AEEMA is working to establish foundations for the sustainable growth of the industry.

    An industry-led approach, facilitated by government, is essential in addressing and optimising domestic and international project opportunities in key niche markets that are within the capabilities of the emerging Australian industry.

    The main goal of the Australian Telematics Industry Initiative is ‘to deliver a common purpose to a fragmented industry, ensuring commonality, vision and strategy is developed by the industry as a whole. It will allow Australia to assume a place on the world stage, and not be a fringe player’. Significant progress has been made since the early beginnings of the Initiative in achieving this goal.

    The Australian Telematics Industry Cluster model, with its associated activities, will continue to enhance a new industry that is already generating considerable employment and economic benefits to this country.

    AEEMA manages the Australian National Telematics Cluster from its new Melbourne base. In addition to its membership services, policy and submissions to government and the establishment of internationally recognised industry standards are a key component of the Association’s broad activities.

    Australian Telematics Capability Safe, Smart and Connected Australia has a substantial potential market for telematics systems. One million new passenger and commercial vehicles are registered per year and there are 13.5 million vehicles on our roads. 74.2% of this number are passenger vehicles and approximately one third of these relate to commercial fleets. 400,000 vehicles are manufactured in Australia each year of which 125,000 are exported.
