The Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles and Innovate UK have published a series of case studies of connected and autonomous vehicle (CAV) projects in the UK. Here, Intelligent Transport gives an overview.
The three-year consultation focused on Highly Automated Road Passenger Services (HARPS) which use self-driving vehicles capable of carrying only passengers or travelling empty with no human driver on board.
The specification is said to be the first government and industry-backed standardisation programme that aims to help promote safe public trials and development testing of automated vehicles in the UK.
The partnership hopes to create a set of industry recognised standards that will accelerate the safe and successful deployment of automated vehicles, and champion British expertise in this field.
A new one-year feasibility study, focused on connected and autonomous vehicle data and behaviour, could ensure the vehicles meet the needs of both regulators and customers.
The convergence of multiple layers of technological innovation in recent years is culminating in a truly revolutionary change to the way we navigate our urban areas. Iain Forbes, Head of the UK Government’s Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CCAV) explains why the need for a structured collaborative approach has…
