DRIVEN is all about insuring, ensuring and exporting fleet wide Level 4 connected autonomy. Bringing together dedicated autonomy specialists, world-class innovators, key enablers, disseminators, and transport experts, DRIVEN is the most complex CAV trial that’s ever been attempted.
The consortium’s 30-month project plan, which is due to commence in April 2017, will shake-up both the transportation and insurance industries by seeking to remove fundamental barriers to real-world commercial deployment of autonomous vehicles. Key challenges the consortium will address include: communication and data sharing between connected vehicles; Connected and Autonomous Vehicles insurance modelling: risk profiling and the new cybersecurity challenges that this amount of data sharing will bring.
Besides Oxbotica, other partners involved in the UK project include Oxford Robotics Institute, re/insurer AXA XL, Nominet, Telefonica O2 UK, Transport Research Laboratory, the UK Atomic Energy Authority’s RACE, Oxfordshire County Council, Cicero Group and Transport for London.
