CONSTABLE Care Child Safety Foundation has won a Australian Road Safety Award for its world-first road safety app.
The free Arility Road Safety app, launched last year, was developed by IT experts DSBS and the Maylands-based foundation.
It has six road safety activities that allow students to see and experience risk at locations including bus stops and railway crossings in an augmented reality environment.
Schools across Australia have used the free app on classroom iPads.
The foundation accepted the award at an event at The Carousel in Melbourne on March 13, as part of the 2019 Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix.
Chief executive David Gribble said it was the first award since the app was launched in October.
“Arility is a world-first road safety education tool and this award is fabulous recognition for our ground-breaking augmented reality approach,” he said.
