MuCCA

01/08/2017
MuCCA is a £4.6m, 30-month project supported by Innovate UK, which will develop a next-generation driver aid that aims to avoid multi-car collisions on motorways. If an accident cannot be avoided, the MuCCA system will attempt to minimise its consequences (both injuries and damage).
These goals mean the project will implement, test and refine solutions to many of the technical challenges that face fully autonomous cars. These challenges include sensor systems, machine learning, vehicle-to-vehicle communications and vehicle control systems.
 
This technology aims first and foremost to avoid an accident, but if an accident cannot be avoided, the MuCCA system will attempt to minimise its consequences. The project will culminate in a trial involving up to five MuCCA-equipped connected vehicles, and one or more human-controlled vehicles, which will demonstrate how accidents can be avoided at high speed in simulated motorway conditions.
