UK Autodrive completes proving ground trials

The UK’s largest collaborative trial of connected and autonomous vehicle technology has been given the green light to move out onto city streets, after the UK Autodrive consortium successfully completed its final set of private test track demonstrations.

Project partners Jaguar Land Rover, Ford and Tata Motors European Technical Centre (TMETC) came together at the HORIBA MIRA Proving Ground in Nuneaton on Thursday to demonstrate a series of connected car technologies that are now ready to be trialled on the roads of Milton Keynes and Coventry, while Jaguar Land Rover also presented the latest version of their automated vehicle technology.

The three vehicle manufacturers are all taking part in the £20 million UK Autodrive research and development project, jointly funded by government and industry.

UK Autodrive is the first project in the UK to showcase the benefits of having cars that can “talk” to each other across multiple makes of car. During Thursday’s event, the car-makers jointly demonstrated three of the seven connected car features (see full list below) which are being trialled during the three-year programme.
