Great news for our region, leading the way yet again!

Taken from a news article in Fleet News, and widely reported in the media this mornining, roads in Coventry and Birmingham are set to become a world-class UK testbed for developing the next generation connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs), thanks to a new £25m programme of investment being led by WMG at the University of Warwick.

In the article Professor Paul Jennings, CAV technology expert from WMG, and taking the lead in this project said: “I am thrilled to be working alongside our consortium partners on the UK Central CAV Testbed which will form a key part of the new UK Testing Infrastructure.

“The Midlands has a proud heritage of pioneering vehicle development, and I am delighted to be part of the next era – bringing CAVs onto the road and allowing all of us to reap the benefits as soon as possible.”
