The Transport Research Laboratory (TRL) is part of a consortium of companies called MOVE_UK that says it will “help position the UK as a world leader in automated and self-driving cars”.
Led by Bosch, the MOVE_UK project benefits from a £5.5 million grant awarded by InnovateUK – the government initiative which has allocated £100 million to help jump-start the driverless car industry – and will see driverless technology trialled in real world conditions on roads in Greenwich, London.
Alongside TRL, UK project partners include Bosch, Jaguar Land Rover, Direct Line Group, The Floow and the Royal Borough of Greenwich. Together, the partners will see MOVE_UK accelerate the entry of automated, driverless car technologies to the UK market. The project will increase the rate of development and testing of these technologies at a lower cost to vehicle manufacturers.
