CertiCAV Final Showcase: Assuring the safety of highly automated vehicles

View Event Details

Event finished: 15th March 2021

The CertiCAV project has created a potential practice framework for the development and management of Highly Automated Vehicle (HAV) assurance. This assurance focuses on the important area of safety, but also touches on other practical aspects such as the efficiency of the transport system and cooperation between road users. Working for the Department for Transport, the Connected Places Catapult in collaboration with WMG – The University of Warwick, have explored topics including the information a manufacturer would be expected to present, how performance requirements may be developed and measured, best practice for HAV verification & validation, and finally the activities an independent authority may conduct to assure conformance to the requirements.

This webinar is a chance to be informed of, and ask questions about, the ideas we have developed during the project. These ideas will be built on by the DfT as they develop regulatory assurance processes for HAVs to help bring the technology to market and enshrine the UK’s global leadership position in HAV testing and safety.
