£55m now available to develop test bed infrastructure for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles in the UK

Up to £55 million is available to develop test bed infrastructure that will improve and create world-leading capabilities in the UK.

The Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CCAV) is investing up to £55 million to make the UK’s connected and autonomous vehicle testing ecosystem the world’s most effective.

Here in the UK we have a strong automotive and technology heartland in the West Midlands through to Europe’s only megacity, London. Projects should look to build on these strengths, integrating existing proving grounds and public road test sites to improve capabilities and create new ones, and develop a national cluster of excellence.

This competition is part of the test bed programme for the government’s Industrial Strategy.

AESIN is delighted to be supporting this activity which will be of value of our AESIN Members. 

More details can be found on the CCAV website.
