Automated Vehicles

Connected and Automated Vehicles offer transformational opportunities for safety, access to mobility, lower emissions and increased efficiency and productivity of our transport systems

Brought by the extraordinary innovations in processing power, artificial intelligence, machine learning, sensors, and business models we are on the edge of profound changes in the way in which people and goods move around. The emergence of Connected and Automated Vehicles presents us with transformational opportunities for safety, access to mobility, lower emissions and increased efficiency and productivity of our transport systems.

By 2035 this new industry is estimated to be worth £62 billion for the UK, with more than £440 million joint investments by the government and industry already made in more than 90 R&D projects involving more than 200 companies.

The KTN inputs into policy programmes, facilitates knowledge transfer, and can support organisations in their journey towards improving the future of mobility.

They do this by helping organisations in finding solutions to their challenges, connecting them to the right potential partners and making sure they succeed.

Since the end of 2017, the team has helped UK organisations win more than £60 million in R&D grants as well as achieve projects value of more than £90 million.
