Zenzic has launched the third year of its connected and automated mobility (CAM) programme, which offers participants access to £500,000 in funding through the UK Centre of Connected and Autonomous Vehicles.
The announcement follows the UK government’s recent investment of £40m in the sector.
The programme, in partnership with Silicon Valley-based corporate innovation platform Plug and Play, offers start-ups and SMEs the chance to test their products at CAM Testbed UK.
Companies will be given access to technical and business assistance, investment from Plug and Play and Zenzic’s insights from the UK CAM Roadmap to 2030.
Mark Cracknell, programme director – CAM, Zenzic, said: “The successful start-ups and SMEs of the programme, whose new and novel solutions have addressed real world challenges within the ecosystem… demonstrates the UK’s reputation as a global leader in CAM.
“As the UK government rolls out investment for the commercial deployment of CAM, this year’s programme will support these ambitions by giving more start-ups and SMEs the opportunity to accelerate their products to market.”
Last year, the project supported six successful CAM technologies, including Albora Technologies, Exeros Technologies, Grayscale AI, R4DAR Technologies, Route Konnect and Xtract.
