Project Darwin is a collaboration between telecommunications services providers Telefonica and O2 and the European Space Agency (ESA). The four-year trial, launched in June 2019, is pioneering next-generation connectivity solutions for connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs).

Based on the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus in Oxfordshire, the project has brought together Oxford University, Glasgow University, Spanish satellite company Hispasat, Darwin Innovation Group Oxford and the UK Space Agency to explore new technology and end-to-end connectivity solutions, including 5G and satellite communications.
