Track day event allow hackers, developers, hobbyists and makers the chance to test out their autonomous vehicles on Bruntingthorpe airfield Birmingham, this coming November.
The government’s Innovate UK organization, which funds emerging technology projects in the country hopes that startups and universities will converge on the event, instead of it being all about large manufacturers like Volvo, Jaguar Land Rover, and Nissan testing their latest self-driving system.
RDM Group, one of the first firms Innovate UK backed, may bring its new pods to the event. It recently launched UK Autodrive, a £19 million ($24 million) project to integrate driverless pods into urban environments.
It will be the first track day for autonomous cars on the continent, allowing manufacturers, software developers, and enthusiasts to come together and work on building the next generation of transport. -readwrite.com
