Check Your Eligibility

Fund details

Your project must develop Connected and Automated Mobility (CAM) technologies, products or services into commercial offerings to exploit early and medium term commercial markets in the UK and internationally.

Your proposal must show how you will support the deployment of self-driving vehicles, by strengthening the capabilities of the sovereign UK CAM supply chain in one or more of the following areas:

  • filling specific technology gaps
  • improved safety or security
  • reduced costs
  • improved performance
  • improved reliability
  • enabling the scaling-up of product supply or service provision

Your proposal must identify a clear market opportunity and an innovative project which exploits it.

Your project must focus on developing products or services in one or more of the following:

  • Perception & Localisation: Developing solutions that enhance the perception and localisation capabilities of automated driving systems (ADS) supporting safe behaviours, especially around vulnerable road users
  • Safety or Mission Critical Vehicle Systems: Vehicle systems, subsystems, components or associated computer hardware critical to the safe, secure and reliable deployment of self-driving vehicles
  • Advanced Software Solutions: Solutions, including for insurance services that support the effective delivery of the ADS, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) and simulation
  • Verification and validation (V&V) of CAM: Effective and efficient V&V tools and services including those that enhance the delivery of blended virtual and physical solutions, supporting developers, deployers, insurers and assurers.
  • Infrastructure: Research and development (R&D) to enhance the delivery of physical and digital infrastructure that supports and enhances the delivery of connected and self-driving vehicles and their services.
