Driverless Car Project Launched
A new collaborative partnership designed to bring forward driverless car technology has been launched.
VENTURER Alliance has been created to continue the pioneering work of the innovative £5m UK government co-funded VENTURER research and development project.
The partnership is made up of Atkins (a member of the SNC-Lavalin group), AXA UK, BAE Systems, Bristol City Council, Bristol Robotics Laboratory, Burges Salmon, Fusion Processing, South Gloucestershire Council, University of Bristol, University of the West of England and Williams Advanced Engineering.
The VENTURER Alliance aims to support the ongoing design, testing, trialling, integration and deployment of connected and autonomous vehicle (CAV) on the UK transport network; and exploring the potential impact of CAVs on UK society and infrastructure.
Nathan Marsh, chair of the VENTURER Alliance board and intelligent mobility director at Atkins, said: “The VENTURER partners have an established pedigree and proven success working together to overcome the barriers to the adoption of connected and autonomous vehicles in the UK.
“The VENTURER Alliance is the next chapter in the VENTURER story. It leverages the expertise and capabilities acquired during the project’s investigations into the impact of CAVs on the user, technology and the regulatory environment, to help achieve the future deployment of CAVs on UK roads.
“The VENTURER Alliance builds on the important work carried out by the VENTURER project to establish the West of England as a centre of excellence for the safe, user-led trialling of CAV technology.”
