Projects need to come up with technical solutions for connected and autonomous vehicle features that provide real-world benefits to users. This includes how these vehicles will work as part of a wider transport system. We are seeking proposals where the commercial benefit is clear.
This competition is in 4 streams.
Stream 1 will fund a large-scale challenge to develop and demonstrate a vehicle operating at SAE level 4 automation.
We expect to fund either a single project or 2 projects maximum. We expect projects to have total costs of £15 million to £30 million. Projects should last between 18 and 30 months.
Streams 2, 3 and 4 will fund feasibility studies and industrial research and development projects on connected and autonomous vehicles.
We expect projects to range in size from total costs of £250,000 to £5 million. Projects should last between 12 and 30 months.
All projects must be collaborative and a business must lead the project.
