£25m funding could bring self-driving services from 2020
Self-driving vehicle developers can now apply for a share of up to £25m to develop, demonstrate and trial technologies for connected and autonomous vehicles in real-world settings.
Funding is for pilots of self-driving passenger vehicles, which include at least a six-month trial in a public or semi-controlled setting.
In total, CCAV is investing £150m, match-funded by industry over five years, into self-driving technologies, with trials already underway in Bristol, Coventry, Greenwich and Milton Keynes.
