MOVE_UK in Sheffield by the revolutionary Bessemer converter - The rear surround radars added into one of our test vehicles can be seen clearly in this image.
MOVE_UK partners brought together from autonomous leading organisations across the UK. Collectively we are seeking ways to strengthen and validate new technologies to enable the safe deployment of the next transport revolution. In the project meetings this week it was the turn of The Floow Limited to host meetings in Sheffield.
Fittingly for a project exploring new technology set to revolutionise transport the meeting was hosted where Bessemer steel was first developed. This historic invention (a vital part of the Industrial revolution) enabled several prior transport innovations most notably stronger steels providing the means to expand global rail networks and then provided the stronger metals needed to build the first safer motor vehicles. It was great to work this week in this historic setting as we collectively collaborate on the next generation of transport technologies.
