The prize winners will also have the opportunity to try out their products on the UK's autonomous vehicle testing facilities to get them ready for use in the real world.
The new insights of the updated report show where UK companies are well placed to deliver core elements of Connected and Autonomous Mobility.
With this new guidance, Zenzic and Aurrigo hope to lay the foundations for the development of an industry-wide set of official design guidelines to cater for the needs of vulnerable users in the creation of shared use self-driving vehicles.
Daniel Ruiz, CEO of Zenzic, and Geoff Davis, Executive Director, HORIBA MIRA & VP for HORIBA Automotive Test Systems, explain why the UK needs to act now to stay ahead of the challenges around automotive cyber-security.
The initiative - CAM Creators - aims to create a network of connected and automated mobility (CAM) sector connections and allows members to claim their place on a list of CAM Roadmap milestones.
From data accuracy to the terminology being used, the latest report from Zenzic shows that the CAV sector must come to a consensus on mapping data to achieve its goals.
Self-driving advocacy organisation Zenzic has highlighted research which suggests connected and autonomous vehicles will be key in the UK's journey to achieving net zero by 2050.
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.
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 Zenzic competition winners will help define requirements for, and support the development of a connected and automated mobility (CAM) cyber security testing capabilities.
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.
Daniel Ruiz, CEO at Zenzic, talks to Intelligent Transport about connected and self-driving vehicles (CAVs) in the UK and explains why the country is well-placed to take advantage of the social and economic benefits they can provide.
