Common Industry IVMS Roadmap

A single CSG industry roadmap to enable a single navigation solution for use by CSG companies and contractors.

Challenge

Driving poses a significant safety risk for the Industry.  Providing In Vehicle Monitoring System (IVMS) and journey navigation tools to the CSG workforce, emergency services and other interested parties is an important way to manage these risks.

Commercially available navigation apps do not incorporate CSG roads and facilities.  In addition, although many of the current contractor workforce is common across all CSG operators, traversing the same road networks, no shared routing applications exist.

Solution

Create a single CSG industry roadmap and use this map to enable a single navigation solution for use by CSG companies and contractors.

Benefits will include:

  • Removing duplication associated with maintaining similar datasets across multiple operators.  It will provide the safest and most efficient journey navigation to all staff, contractors, emergency services and other interested parties throughout Qld’s remote CSG fields.
  • Enabling direct navigation to CSG infrastructure on large rural properties, minimising land access breaches.

Result

A single CSG industry roadmap has been created.  It covers 27,500 square km of the CSG operations areas and includes all geofenced speed zones and common points of interest consolidated from all four major CSG operating companies.   This map has been shared with providers of IVMS solutions.  

The map will be maintained centrally and re-issued to IVMS providers regularly.  Road users will help to update the map by using an on-line form to report errors and provide information about changes to the road network.

Notify us of a road network change here.

Coming Next

  • Evaluate available solutions for a navigation app. Incorporate the CSG industry roadmap into this app and make it available to users.
