HORIBA MIRA to Showcase Connected Autonomous Vehicles at LCV 2016

HORIBA MIRA – a world-leader in advanced engineering, research and product testing – is to demonstrate its work in the development of ground-breaking Connected and Autonomous Vehicle (CAV) technologies at the Low Carbon Vehicle (LCV) 2016 event.

During the event, HORIBA MIRA will address the test and validation challenges associated with CAV technologies and will be showcasing its expertise in ISO26262, MISRA and Cyber Security. HORIBA MIRA will also demonstrate its work in the transition of CAV technologies from test and simulation to real world field trials and deployment.

HORIBA MIRA will also feature a number of collaborative programmes in progress, through close cooperation with cities and road network operators in the UK. These programmes include UK CITE and UK Autodrive.
The UK CITE project aims to create one of the world’s most advanced environments for CAV technologies by creating a connected corridor in the area of Coventry and Warwickshire. Concurrently, the UK Autodrive consortium will see research teams (from the Milton Keynes and Coventry areas) assess public reaction to autonomous vehicle and will consider the implications and challenges of introducing CAV on UK roads, aiming to establish the UK as global hub for autonomous vehicle technologies.

Chris Reeves, Commercial Manager – Intelligent Mobility & Future Transport Technologies, at HORIBA MIRA will be giving a presentation on the Test and Validation Challenges Facing Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Connected Autonomous Vehicles (CAV) during the show.

Chris comments:

“The UK is paving the way in the development of CAV technologies. At HORIBA MIRA we are working in partnership with our clients to develop these technologies and address the test and validation challenges associated with CAV. This includes building on our expertise in ISO26262, MISRA and Cyber Security and validating these technologies in controlled environments using the HORIBA MIRA City Circuit.”

“Increased consumer acceptance and awareness, coupled with technical advances, are fuelling a rapid increase in the deployment of automated systems. The automated systems bring with them increasing challenges associated with their development and test and validation to ensure the products are fit for purpose, consistently reliable and intrinsically safe. LCV is a great opportunity for us to highlight the technical challenges we face and propose approaches to counter them.”

We have a long-established reputation as the leading partner of choice for vehicle-driven attributes engineering. Complementing our deep engineering expertise in this field, this new investment further strengthens our position and enables us to increasingly lead the way in engineering solutions for the rapidly changing needs of future mobility.

The Low Carbon Vehicle Event 2016 (LCV) takes place at the Millbrook proving ground 14-15 September 2016. For more information, visit http://www.cenex-lcv.co.uk/2016/
