Connected and autonomous vehicle cyber-security feasibility studies
The Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CCAV) is partnering with Zenzic (formally Meridian Mobility) and Innovate UK, part of UK Research and Innovation. Together we will invest up to £2 million in a maximum of 5 projects to support the development of a connected and autonomous vehicle (CAV) cyber-security testing capability. If there are successful projects, these capabilities may be created as part of a future competition.
KTN and Innovate UK held an online briefing for this event on 12th August: watch the webinar recording here.
Your proposal must fulfil 3 requirements:
- Find ways to measure cyber-physical resilience and maintain cyber security for vehicles, roadside infrastructure, supporting services and so on.
- Provide input specifications for one or more new cyber test facilities.
- Explore opportunities to develop new cyber related services.
Your project must address one of 5 themes:
- Threats to connected vehicle networks
- Threats to automated vehicles
- Countermeasure and risk mitigation
- Other areas of cyber security which may improve the safety and security of vehicle occupants, service users, other road users (including vulnerable road users) and road safety at any scale.
Your project’s total eligible costs must be between £50,000 and £800,000. Projects must start by 1 January 2020 and end by 31 March 2020. They can last between 3 and 4 months.
If your project’s total eligible costs or duration fall outside of our eligibility criteria, you must provide justification by email to firstname.lastname@example.org at least 10 days before the competition closes. Innovate UK will decide whether to approve your request.
The competition closes at midday 12pm UK time on the deadline stated.
