The 3 projects funded under the challenge were:
DRIVEN, led by Oxbotica
Deployed a fleet of fully autonomous vehicles in urban and inter urban areas, culminating in autonomous journeys within London and Oxford.
No connected and autonomous vehicle trial at this level of complexity and integration had previously been attempted anywhere in the world.
StreetWise, led by FiveAI
Aimed to demonstrate the technology, safety validation methods, insurance and service models for delivering an autonomous personal mobility solution needed to replace the urban commuter car.
RoboPilot, led by Arrival
Developed and demonstrated autonomous driving functionality for an electric delivery van. This can then be adapted for future rollout of larger trucks and buses, bringing advanced autonomous technology to the light commercial vehicles market.
Demonstration of Society of Automotive Engineers level 4 autonomy over a 10-mile route on mixed public roads in all weathers, and of driverless self-parking.
