Telstra & Lexus Australia
In December 2018, the Victorian Minister for Roads and Road Safety Jaala Pulford announced a $3.5m grant to Telstra and Lexus Australia to run Australia’s first connected vehicle field trial using 4G Cellular V2X technology. Two Lexus RX450h cars will wirelessly connect to each other and also through the 4G network to traffic signal control systems, traffic management centres and other services.
Lexus vehicles fitted with Cellular V2X radio technology will test advanced driver assist features including crash warning systems and lane keeping assist. The project will allow Telstra, Lexus Australia, VicRoads and TAC to understand how this life-saving technology can be made available on production vehicles.

Careers with STEM
The Careers with STEM magazine and website help students discover the careers of the future. Each year we deliver four magazines across each of the STEM disciplines, plus special editions, like Data Science and Cybersecurity.
While 75% of future jobs will require STEM skills, just 16% of high-school graduates are enrolling in STEM degrees in Australia. Many of the careers of the future will combine STEM skills with other areas. We call it ‘STEM + X’, for example Technology + Fashion = 3D printed clothes. Maths + Sport = Sports Statistician.
To find your STEM + X career pathway and more, visit STEM.
