Centre for Connected & Autonomous Automotive Research (CCAAR)
Built on strong research and innovation links, CCAAR is a collaboration between HORIBA MIRA and Coventry University. It brings together experimentation and study to provide the underpinning knowledge and research that supports the rapid growth within the global intelligent mobility sector to address future transport needs.
CCAAR consists of academic staff members and doctoral research students from Coventry University, alongside HORIBA MIRA’s engineering and test teams.
The Centre helps to nurture a pipeline of future talent to bridge the skills gaps in the industry.
Located at MIRA Technology Park, CCAAR benefits from the use of HORIBA MIRA’s world-class facilities and technologies to deliver the following core objectives:
- Provide an environment to simulate, test and evaluate the security and safety of Connected Autonomous Vehicles (CAV)
- Undertake research to accelerate the development of new products and services in the CAV segment – vehicle connectivity, automotive cybersecurity, traffic simulation and modelling, human factors and design
- Produce a pipeline of talent to support growth of the CAV segment
