Intelligent Mobility @ UCL
EPSRC-funded driving simulator for pushing the maturity of the next generation of autonomous vehicles at PEARL
We enable a successful transition towards safe and trustworthy autonomous vehicles.
We are experiencing a paradigm shift towards fully autonomous vehicles. These systems have to manage a wide variety of situations, conditions and environments in an accurate, reliable, safe and trustworthy way.
Through IM@UCL, we will deliver impact for public benefit through cross-disciplinary research and engagement with end-users, industry and the public.
This unique platform is underpinned by UCL’s vision to be a hub for technology, knowledge and equipment sharing.
