OverviewA presentation on the Capri autonomous shuttle project and how it is helping to shape the future of transport.
Autonomous shuttles will play a key role in the future of our transport system. The Capri (Connected and Autonomous POD on-Road Implementation) project was a collaborative research and development project awarded by The Centre for Connected & Autonomous Vehicles (CCAV), commissioned by Innovate UK, and delivered by an AECOM-led consortium comprising 17 partner organisations across the public, private, and academic sectors.
The scheme looked at the design, development, and testing of new autonomous and connected pods on-demand (PODs), together with the systems and technologies for the vehicles to safely navigate in both pedestrian and road environments. It also included trials to test the PODs’ performance in different real-world environments, such as private and public areas, especially with regard to safety and security aspects.
Four presenters will give perspectives from their involvement in the Capri autonomous shuttle project which successfully completed in October 2020, including findings on how the economic, citizen and legal perspectives on autonomous shuttles need to be considered to help shape the future of transport.
