BBC’s Law in Action experience HumanDrive at Cranfield University

Cranfield University’s Multi-User Environment for Autonomous Vehicle Innovation (MUEAVI) provided the location for part of a recent Law in Action recording focused on the legal implications of connected and autonomous vehicles (CAV) on UK roads.

 

Neil Fulton, Connected and Autonomous Transport Programme Director from the Transport Systems Catapult, was interviewed about the HumanDrive project, which is using the Cranfield MUEAVI autonomous vehicle test site to put the HumanDrive vehicles through their paces by simulating a number of scenarios and monitoring the cars’ reactions.

 

MUEAVI is a new £9 million open research facility, comprising a mile of ‘shared surface’ fully functioning roadway and pedestrian access through the centre of the campus, to support the development of autonomous transport vehicles and related systems.
