Connected and autonomous vehicles simulation: collaborative R&D
The Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CCAV), in partnership with Innovate UK, is investing up to £15 million in industry-led projects. These will use holistic simulation and modelling systems to develop approval mechanisms and standards. This work will support the development and deployment of connected and autonomous vehicles, and help make sure they will receive approval in the future.
This competition is for collaborative research and development (R&D) projects. It is the first stage of CCAV’s approach to enhancing the UK’s testing ecosystem through simulation and modelling. Project teams should consider how their proposal will enhance the UK’s testing ecosystem.
To lead a project you must:
- be a UK based business, of any size
- carry out your project in the UK
- work in collaboration with others (businesses, research base and third sector)
For all research organisations the total level of project participation is set at 30% of the total eligible project costs. If your consortium contains more than one research organisation, this maximum will be shared between them.
