Driverless Cars Get the Green Light for Trials on Our Main Roads – MK Are You Ready?


Driverless Cars Get the Green Light for Trials on Our Main Roads – MK Are You Ready?


JULY 2017

The UK's biggest collaborative trial of driverless and connected cars has been given the green light to move out onto city streets.

The £20 million UK Autodrive research and development consortium – jointly funded by Government and industry – was today marking its final private test track demonstrations at the HORIBA MIRA Proving Ground, at Higham on the Hill, near Hinckley.

Project partners Jaguar Land Rover, Ford and Tata Motors European Technical Centre were coming together to demonstrate connected car technologies before they are trialled on the roads of Milton Keynes and Coventry.

The autonomous and connected technology being tested could go into production as early as 2019.

The idea is that driverless and connected cars will be safer and more efficient, free up drivers' time and, by working together and anticipating things such as traffic light changes, ease inner city congestion.
