UK autonomous vehicle development centre nears completion

Horiba Mira is due to open its new £100 million autonomous vehicle development centre in Coventry before the end of March next year.

Assured CAV has been designed to be a location where organisations can lead in both the development and verification of self-driving technologies, but also where the learning can be applied to influence future legislation, policy and insurance.

The new test centre is supported by the Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles as part of CAM Testbed UK.

The facilities will enable high-speed tests, urban tests, multi-storey car park testing and an onsite network of campus roads.

The site will also be connected with a 5G private network through Vodafone and there will be advanced robotic targets and supporting junction layouts adhering to relevant protocols for a full suite of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) testing .

Chris Reeves, head of connected and autonomous vehicle technologies at Horiba Mira, said: “Although we’ve seen huge strides made in CAV technologies in recent years, the overriding challenge for the industry is giving consumers confidence that CAVs are safe enough to be on our roads.

“Assured CAV does just that and is a significant milestone in helping CAV developers bring their vehicles to market.

“Not only will Assured CAV help to ensure a seamless development process, it will also foster the innovations and cross-industry partnerships needed to speed up the self-driving revolution and realise the huge economic and societal benefits it will bring.”
