At the Telematics Industry Group (TIG) forum that TCA hosted last week in Melbourne, road managers and regulators shared with technology stakeholders plans to use the new Road Infrastructure Management (RIM) Application and Telematics Monitoring Application (TMA), TCA reports.

RIM and TMA were two of the 16 initiatives contained in the business case approved by the transport chief executives on behalf of the Transport and Infrastructure Council (TIC) last November.
