Trialling autonomous vehicle and road-infrastructure technology

Smart roads and smart vehicles have the potential to deliver smarter, safer ways for people and freight to get around. And we’re testing this potential – in real life, on our roads and on the wider road network.

Our connected and autonomous vehicle (CAV) trials help us and our trial partners prepare for a future where vehicles and roads communicate with each other, sharing data that helps make travel safer, quicker and more efficient for everyone on the road.
