This year at the ITS World Congress the UK is highlighting its capabilities in the field of connected and autonomous vehicle (CAV) technology, with Aurrigo undertaking live demonstrations of its autonomous pods, including shuttling Congress visitors to and from the local Metro station.
The UK Pavilion is hosting high-profile transport organisations from Great Britain, including Innovate UK, The UK Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CCAV), Meridian Mobility and the Transport Systems Catapult, supported by the Department for International Trade.
Visitors to the UK Pavilion can meet a host of SMEs with specialities in areas such as large-scale simulations, transport IT systems, Mobility as a Service and AI.
Delegates are also advised to look out for the UK Ambassador’s reception event at 3pm today which will provide an excellent opportunity to network and learn more about the opportunities on offer in the country for those looking to develop connected and autonomous vehicles.
“The UK is a world leader when it comes to connected and autonomous vehicle technology and the ITS World Congress is an excellent stage to show off our innovative SMEs, academic expertise, development facilities and progressive legislation,” said Paul Campion, CEO of Transport Systems Catapult.
“The businesses we have on show demonstrate how exciting this sector is in the UK. “We’ll be seeking international partners and businesses looking for places to test and develop CAV technology, so we can show them how the UK can support them.”
