CAVWAY is a new Connected & Autonomous Vehicle (CAV) proving ground that will soon start to be built near Oxford in the UK and is expected to be operative by the end of 2021. This new in-house designed UK facility will be operated by IDIADA together with our consortium partner, Prova Developments.
What makes CAVWAY special is that it will include a comprehensive set of highway junctions, all within a fully connected, controlled, repeatable and safe environment to perform all required development and validation testing programmes for ADAS and CAV development, and according to the latest Euro NCAP and regulation requirements.
A wide variety of testing possibilities for development and validation projects will be possible thanks to fully configurable V2X, C-V2X, 4G / 5G network coverage. At CAVWAY proving ground, it will be possible to control everything the vehicle “hears” and “sees” in a coordinated way to set up all kinds of tricky edge-case traffic scenarios, facilitating seamless integration between experimental and virtual development work.
Additionally, CAVWAY will also offer vehicle simulation and cyber security testing in normal and abnormal conditions, as well as connectivity testing and benchmarking, among other services
