Project update

The HumanDrive project team presented the results and findings of this ground-breaking project to the international audience at the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) CAV Forum virtual meeting on July 14th 2020.

SMMT is one of the largest trade associations in the UK which provides a platform for over 800 automotive companies to share and communicate their views across the members, government and regulatory authorities.

Robert Bateman from Nissan Technical Centre Europe, Nick Blake from Hitachi Automotive Systems UK, Edward Mayo from Connected Places Catapult, and Foroogh Hajiseyedjavadi from the University of Leeds Human Factors and Safety group presented the scope of the project, its achievements, as well as technical aspects and challenges of developing human-like automated vehicle technologies. The presentations also covered the detail of the project’s ‘Grand Drive’, which was a successful 230-mile self-navigated journey on UK roads (see below).
