Multi-Car Collision Avoidance project:

The Multi-Car Collision Avoidance (MuCCA) project was a world first, demonstrating real-time cooperative collision avoidance by full-sized automated vehicles. This worked through vehicle-to-vehicle messaging and completely new control algorithms. It ran on our own IDAPT high-performance ECU platform with GPU, integrated V2V radio, RTK satellite positioning and comprehensive I/O, aimed at diverse CAV applications.



CAVRide project:

This is a level 4 self-driving site taxi with connected back-end support for ride-hailing via a mobile phone app. The same vehicle has supported the development of the novel vehicle-in-the-loop validation technique.
