MOVE_UK was one of several projects featured on the Meridian CAV showcase at LCV CENEX (The UK's premier Low Carbon and Future Vehicle technology event). MOVE_UK first attended LCV CENEX in 2016 to highlight the project's scope and its intention to accelerate the development of automated driving systems. Since this first visit a lot has changed both within our project and also outside it. One such change is the presence of a much larger number of CAV projects at LCV Cenex, which this year were centred around the Meridian CAV showcase. MOVE_UK was prominently placed on this showcase which highlighted the developments in CAV in the UK. During the event the MOVE_UK team where highly active; involvements included:
Overall the LCV CENEX event showed how far UK CAV technologies have come in a short space of time. MOVE_UK is very proud to be a central part of these growing developments.
Members of the MOVE_UK consortium highlighted the project in presentations and also the events panel session at the CWIC Starter: Mobility and Transport workshop organised by Cambridge Wireless. This event included presentations on the future shared use of self-driving, non-polluting vehicles that communicate with each other to improve safety and efficiency of their operation.
Key presentations included:
MOVE_UK partners (Bosch, The Floow Limited) have taken part in a UK wide showcase of driverless car research. This event hosted in Southampton gathered all the leaders of CCAV funded research programs across the UK. The aim of the meeting was to share best practice and understand the wider CCAV research efforts across wider research projects. MOVE_UK showcased the project outline at this event to all the CCAV funded projects in the UK.
MOVE_UK has been centre stage at LCV CENEX showcasing its early work in accelerating automated driving by connected validation and big data analysis. The MOVE_UK project was highlighted at LCV CENEX with a briefing presentation and a stand with one of the project vehicles which will in early 2017 be operating and gathering mobility data in Greenwich, UK.
The project helps support the governments aims to advance autonomous technology in the U.K. and benefits from a £3.4m UK government grant to help advance the state of art in autonomous vehicle validation. This grant comes from the UK government’s £100m Intelligent Mobility fund, which is administered by the Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CCAV) and delivered by the UK’s innovation agency, Innovate UK.
