Williams Advanced Engineering is pleased to announce that it is part of a consortium that has secured government funding from Innovate UK to test driverless cars in the Bristol region. This appointment follows the Chancellor’s recent autumn statement announcement to make the UK a world centre for the testing and development of this new technology.

Williams will be bringing its simulator and artificial intelligence technology to the project. An autonomous vehicle system will be integrated with the simulator to test it in a virtual environment. This technology will help increase the number of hours the system can be tested and can simulate various weather conditions and traffic scenarios that are difficult to test on real roads.
