The MOVE_UK project has now completed 100,000 miles and over 7,400 hours of on road driving, collecting over 330 GB of valuable real world sensor data.
The MOVE_UK trials are designed to capture a balanced sample of driving conditions, operating the vehicles at different times of the day by different drivers in urban, semi-urban and rural areas. Relevant driving assistance systems are being operated in ‘silent’ mode, whereby their features are running in the background and their behaviour can be compared directly to driver behaviour while the response of the vehicle is unaffected.
The data collected from the fleet is transferred via mobile network and Wi-Fi to a central, secure location from where it is being analysed remotely using novel data analysis techniques.
MOVE_UK has been detailed as a highlight research project in a new magazine 'Driven'. This magazine is published separately in Europe and the US. Driven focuses upon impacts and new developments in the Insurance and Telematics area. This is digitally distributed to wide ranging experts in the Insurance and Telematics field.
The article indicates value MOVE_UK brings to the areas of Insurance and risk understanding. The EU version of the Driven magazine can be accessed digitally here.
MOVE_UK is happy to release Data Analysis Report Phase 2. This document details the data analysis work carried out during phase 2 of the MOVE_UK project, including the data collection and analysis methodology, tools used, and extensions of earlier phase 1 use cases. More details on this report can be found on the publication page or link above.
To help expand awareness to wider audiences for key aspects involved in the MOVE_UK project , The Floow, today hosted a webinar highlighting how the project is working to understand risk. The talk presented to a wide audience three key factors of how risk is evolving, these are:
The Future of Vehicles
(presented by Dr Sam Chapman, The Floow)
This detailed what new vehicle technology is coming and how it will affect not only safety, but also how it may also influence behaviour and infrastructure in less obvious ways.
The Future of Infrastructure
(presented by Kim Smith, Royal Borough of Greenwich (DGCities) )
Kim addressed the upcoming changes in infrastructure discussing the impact of how working to address improvements in areas like accident, congestion, emissions and introducing sustainable transport will all impact changes in the road environment and driving. The MOVE_UK pilot region was used in examples to detail wider changes and how risk is evolving.
The Future of Behaviour
(presented by Dr Lisa Dorn, The Floow)
Lisa explained how changes in driver behaviour is shifting and how these evolving behaviours are changing the how, why and where people drive, alongside the associated risks that again these changes can present.
