Innovate UK has announced that UK-registered organisations can apply for a share of up to £900,000 for feasibility studies into the use of connected and automated mobility as a mass transit solution.
In this competition, the Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles is seeking proposals where connected and automated mobility could deliver a significantly more cost effective, and low carbon solution than traditional public transport options, for example, heavy and light rail, trams and buses.
The aim of this competition is to target early commercial self-driving vehicle opportunities and support the UK supply chain to grow and fill technology gaps necessary for their deployment.
Total grant funding requests must be between £50,000 and £200,000.
An online briefing session for anyone interested in applying will be held at 10am on Friday 26 May and you can register here.
