"VENTURER" brings together a rich partnership of public, private and academic experts in order to establish the South West, UK as a world class test site facility for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAV). VENTURER focuses on the users as well as the technology enabling CAVs in order to understand the blockers and drivers to wide scale adoption of CAV capability.
The VENTURER trials go hand in hand with developing an understanding of the insurance and legal implications of increased vehicle autonomy. VENTURER is also establishing a realistic simulation environment.
The project will last for three years and takes place in the Bristol and South Gloucestershire region, with an independent test site established as part of a sustainable and ongoing facility.
The project is co-funded by UK Government.
