About us

The Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CCAV) works across government to support the market for connected and automated vehicles (CAVs)

The government believes that CAVs could change the way we travel, making road transport safer, smoother and more accessible to those with mobility issues. To this end, CCAV, a joint Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and Department for Transport (DfT) policy team, was established in 2015. By working closely with industry, academia and regulators, it aims to make the UK a premier development location for connected and automated vehicles.

We are providing over £250 million in funding, matched by industry, to position the UK at the forefront of CAV research, development and use. This will contribute to UK economic growth and help industry to develop safe, efficient systems to move goods and help people get around.
