- VeriCAV project will explore how simulated environments can support the development of self-driving technology
- Simulated and physical ‘smart actors’ will rigorously test CAVs to give further peace of mind before deployment
Verification of Connected and Autonomous Vehicles
Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAVs) are becoming increasingly sophisticated; yet questions remain around their safe deployment onto public roads. Simulation can help to answer many of these questions.
Running real-world vehicle safety tests is time consuming, resource heavy, and expensive.

Latent Logic: AI that Creates Human Behaviour Models for Driving Simulation
Latent Logic’s state-of-the-art computer vision automatically detects and tracks drivers, pedestrians and cyclists in video from ordinary traffic cameras. This massive dataset trains their AI-based “virtual humans” to behave like real humans. VeriCAV will use these virtual humans to simulate challenging test scenarios which aren’t safe to try out on the road.

Forbes name Latent Logic on list of ’15 Machine Learning Companies to Watch in Europe’
The importance of Latent Logic’s technology to making simulations used in testing of autonomous vehicles more realistic has been recognised by Forbes magazine, which has included us in its list of 15 machine learning companies to watch in Europe.
Using simulation to put Connected and Autonomous Vehicles to the test
Major new project ensures safety and prepares for driverless future. A new connected and autonomous vehicles (CAV) project launched in early 2019 that will help to explore how simulated environments can support the development of self-driving technology.
Brand new vehicle workshop facilities set to open at MIRA Technology Park
