Feasibility funding for Connected and Autonomous Vehicle cyber security - watch the webinar

Posted on: 13/08/2019

Up to £2m is available through this competition to be shared between up to five projects. A webinar is available with more details.

The Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CCAV) is partnering with Zenzic (formally Meridian Mobility) and Innovate UK, part of UK Research and Innovation, to invest up to £2m in a maximum of five projects to support the development of a Connected and Autonomous Vehicle (CAV) cyber-security testing facility.

The competition is seeking ways to measure cyber-physical resilience to maintain cyber security for vehicles, roadside infrastructure and supporting services.  All applications must address this aspect as well as providing input specifications for one or more new cyber test facilities and exploring opportunities to develop new cyber related services.

As well as meeting those three requirements, applicants must address one of five themes:

  1. Monitoring the cyber health of CAVs and supporting infrastructure
  2. Threats to connected vehicle networks
  3. Threats to automated vehicles
  4. Countermeasure and risk mitigation
  5. Other areas of cyber security which may improve safety and security


KTN’s Knowledge Transfer Manager for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles, George Filip, recently ran a webinar to outline the competition, its scope and the application process. ¬†To watch this, simply click on the tile below. ¬†The competition is now open and more details can be found in the webinar below, or click through¬†here.¬† The competition¬†closes at midday on 25 September.
