LinkedIn +

UK-based self-driving development organization Zenzic has joined forces with the Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CCAV) and Innovate UK, to launch a new £2m (US$m) funding competition aimed at improving cybersecurity systems for the connected and autonomous mobility market.

The group will invest up to £2m (US$2.4m) in a maximum of five projects that aim to develop cybersecurity feasibility studies that determine the input specifications for future CAV cyber-testing facilities. Entries for the competition will close on September 25, 2019.

Zenzic will collate the entries and create a consolidated requirement set for CCAV to determine scope for a future testing and development infrastructure competition – currently proposed to be launched in 2020. The maximum grant available for each project will be £400k (US$480k), with a 4% levy payable by industry partners to Zenzic.

Proposals must meet three requirements:
– Determine means for measuring cyber physical resilience and guide approaches for assuring and maintaining cybersecurity for vehicles, roadside infrastructure, supporting services, etc.
– Provide input specifications for one or more new cyber-test facilities
– Explore opportunities to develop new cyber-related services

Successful applicants will become a Zenzic partner and will benefit from support in the formation of consortiums; access to relevant Zenzic events; introductions to relevant parties within the CAM ecosystem; and promotion by Zenzic nationally and internationally.
