Jenoptik has joined the Smart Mobility Living Lab (SMLL), a community of 30 businesses in the UK working to achieve connected, automated, shared and electric mobility. 

The technology company will assist SMLL partners by fusing data from roadside and in-vehicle sensors, developing situational awareness capabilities that can be applied in complex urban environments.

Jenoptik is known for providing roadside monitoring and enforcement systems that help to identify and manage poor driving behaviours.

The company says it is now expanding these techniques into the connected and autonomous vehicle (C/AV) space, delivering technologies to improve roads, journeys and communities.

Geoff Collins, deputy managing director at Jenoptik, says: “When people think of C/AV, they often think of technology in the car, but Vehicle to Infrastructure communications are a vital technology, because they provide an accurate representation for what is really happening."

The SMLL "gives us the chance to develop and test our technologies within a nurturing, collaborative environment".

Testbeds in Greenwich and Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford provide partners with a complex, uncontrolled testing environment, interacting with live traffic and other road users. 

Jenoptik says the testbed is designed to demonstrate and evaluate the use, performance, environmental impact, safety and benefits of connected and automated mobility technology and future transport services.

The Transport Research Laboratory owns the SMLL.
