Exciting news! Project Endeavour comes to Birmingham
Project Endeavour comes to Birmingham, and we are a part of it, alongside some fantastic partners.
About the Endeavour Project
‘In the UK we’ve had public trials of autonomous vehicles on our roads since 2017 and one thing has become very apparent in that time: our towns and cities are all vastly different. And of course the way we live in them is constantly evolving. It’s one of the things that makes scaling the deployment of AV services so challenging.
Committed to tackling exactly that challenge, multi-location trials have always been at the heart of Project Endeavour as we test Oxbotica’s vehicles in three different cities across the country, helping accelerate and scale the deployment and adoption of autonomous vehicle services.
We have recently completed our trial activity in Oxford where we successfully completed demonstrations of our fleet of autonomous vehicles on public roads, and in parallel have engaged with the local community across a range of touchpoints to gather insights into the public’s views and perceptions of autonomous vehicles. Stakeholder engagement has always been a core element of our project and while trialling in Oxford we worked closely with Oxfordshire County Council to test the tools we have been developing for local authorities to support the rollout of autonomous vehicle services.
We are delighted therefore to be announcing today the location for our next trial: Birmingham. Building on our initial vehicle trial in Oxford we are now scaling to running a fleet of 4 vehicles, demonstrating strong progression as we move from one city to the next.‘ To find out more about the project, visit the Project Endeavour Blog:
We are proud to be partners in Project Endeavour. Alongside the technology trials, we’ll be working to understand the how this technology can be scaled to a real service deployment – understanding how AVs can be used to provide a range of beneficial and viable services.
