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 project will redistribute energy generated by buses not in use and provide services for the national grid, regional distribution network operators, bus operators and transport authorities.
A consortium of industry, government and academia has explored the feasibility of creating a UK cyber-security ‘Centre of Excellence’ to better deal with cyber threats in mobility.
Charlene Rohr, Senior Research Leader at RAND Europe, reflects on the research organisation's 'future scenarios' for transport patterns and suggests how COVID-19 could have everlasting impacts.
The project has been launched by UK Power Networks Services, Moixa, UPS, Cross River Partnership and Innovate UK in Camden, London.
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 project aims to see joint UK and African innovations deployed to solve pressing challenges in Africa’s rapidly growing cities, such as congestion and overcrowded public transport.
Three UK projects have received funding to combine the capabilities and skills of original equipment manufacturers, suppliers and academics to further develop the UK’s zero-carbon automotive future.
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.
Ian Cameron, Head of Innovation at UK Power Networks, said smart charging is about promoting choice for consumers and offering incentives to change their charging patterns.
The funding is part of the third round of Innovate UK’s initiative, and is focused on technology that will improve environmental performance.
More choice in charging infrastructure could enable more investment in electric vehicles, and achieve a zero emissions transport system in London by 2050.
A new project from Innovate UK presents the opportunity for business relations to be made, coaching sessions experienced and prospective markets learnt.
