Fund Name: Developing a travel network management system for new mobility: SBRI competition
Project Length: Up to 3 months
Project Value: Share of £250k
Deadline: 17/04/2019

Summary

The aim of the competition is to develop new ideas on how traffic and network management can be upgraded to accommodate ‘new mobility’ options in Oxfordshire.

Fund Details

New mobility technologies include, but are not limited to:

  • connected and/or autonomous vehicles (CAVs)
  • electric vehicles (EVs)
  • drones
  • dockless bikes
  • electric bikes

Proposals should consider how collaborative traffic and network management can:

  • reduce the risk of deployment of these new mobilities
  • enable the growth of the smart mobility market in the area
  • safeguard citizen safety
  • reduce the reliance on infrastructure

In phase 1 you must develop a feasibility study, including the proposed architecture and estimates of the ongoing costs and development. We do not expect all projects to provide solutions for the entire end to end system at this stage.

In phase 2 we expect successful applications to develop a beta version of the system and install it at Oxfordshire county council’s Urban Traffic Management Control Centre in Kidlington.

Projects should range in size up to total costs of £50,000, including VAT, for each organisation. Your project must start on 15 July and can last up to 3 months.

Eligibility

To lead a project, you can:

  • be an organisation of any size
  • work alone or with others from business, the research base or the third sector as subcontractors
