At this year’s AESIN 2017 Conference (Automotive Electronic Systems Innovation Network) Dr. Mike Bartley, Founder and CEO of Tessolve, will present the latest updates on the recently announced CAPRI Project – which brings together an experienced consortium of partners from industry, academia and local authorities to deliver a complete end to end POD (Pods on-demand) mobility service.

Presentation Abstract

The CAPRI consortium builds upon current research and development work within Connected and Autonomous Vehicles and will take this forward to specify the next generation of PODs capable of seamlessly transferring between the on-road and pedestrian environments and harnessing V2X connectivity.

The consortium aims to collate sufficient evidence from the deployment trials and simulation testing to support PODs becoming a recognised vehicle classification for use on public roads and so enable the next generation of PODs capable of safely travelling at on-road speeds on public roads.

The presentation at AESIN 2017 will first discuss two of the main technical objectives of the project:

Verifying and validating the safety and security of the next generation of PODs for both the on and off road environment.
Collating sufficient evidence to support PODs as a new vehicle classification.
The presentation will then go on to consider the solutions being investigated by the project, specifically:

  • Security solutions for the main POD use cases
  • Verification methodologies for the software deployed on the PODs in both simulation and physical test environments
  • Both of the above activities will be informed by a detailed accidentology at the start of the project

The UK has strong credentials in the automotive sector from the University R&D base through to the seven volume car and eight commercial vehicle manufacturers. Times are changing and the race is on. The market winners in this race will be the automotive companies that engage in open innovation practices, developing new partnerships in a technology fuelled eco-system enabled by intelligent systems and connectivity. We are proud to introduce a dedicated UK initiative focused on the accelerated and advanced delivery of Electronic Systems into the car and infrastructure: Automotive Electronic Systems Innovation Network or ‘AESIN’.

The AESIN Conference 2017, builds on the success in previous years and is now being established as the premier UK Automotive Electronics Conference. This year the organisers expect an even bigger and better show with more than 200 delegates expected and capacity for over 20 exhibitors at the popular National Motorcycle Museum next to Birmingham Airport. Along with headline keynotes from Industry and updates from Government, there will be parallel technical tracks covering the six key workstream areas covered by AESIN which include:

  • ADAS & AV
  • Automotive Electronics Security
  • Connected Car
  • More Electric Powertrain
  • Research & Development
  • Software
