It looks like any British city, but the West Midland’s city of Coventry is well on its way to becoming the most futuristic place in the U.K. The city has been chosen to be one of three testbeds for 5G mobile technology, alongside two other West Midland cities, Birmingham and Wolverhampton; and, with the Buckinghamshire town of Milton Keynes, it was also the location for  UK Autodrive, which trialed self-driving and connected vehicle technology. Plus, it’s soon to be home to the National Automotive Innovation Centre. 

Britain’s biggest car maker, Jaguar Land Rover, which is headquartered in Coventry, trialed its Green Light Optimal Speed Advisory (GLOSA) Connected technology in the city. This could put a stop to long waits at red traffic lights and was pioneered as part of the ₤20 million ($25.6 million) U.K. Government-funded project, UK Autodrive.

“The West Midlands is not only home to our engineering center, but also home to the CAV [Connected and Autonomous Vehicles ] testbed, 5G consortiums, a consortium connecting 40 miles of motorways (A45, A46, M40 and M42) with V2X (vehicle- to-everything ) and V2V (vehicle-to-vehicle) capability, forward-thinking local councils, the Smart City Mobility Centre and from next year, the National Automotive Innovation Centre. Jaguar Land Rover are working closely or leading all of these initiatives and so this is the best environment to accelerate our development of connected and autonomous technologies,” explains Colin Lee, Jaguar Land Rover V2X manager.

Part of the University of Warwick, the National Automotive Innovation Centre is under construction in Coventry. Once opened it’s charged with providing a critical mass of research capability combining automotive expertise nationally and internationally and will further strengthen Coventry’s position as an innovative auto tech hub.

Britain’s greatest vehicle maker, Jaguar Land Rover, which is headquartered in Coventry, trialed its Thumbs-up Ideal Speed Advisory(GLOSA) Linked innovation in the city. This might stop long waits at red traffic signal and was originated as part of the ₤ 20 million( $256 million) U.K. Government-funded job, UK Autodrive.

” The West Midlands is not just house to our engineering center, however likewise house to the CAV [Connected and Autonomous Vehicles ] testbed, 5G consortiums, a consortium linking 40 miles of freeways (A45, A46, M40 and M42) with V2X (car- to-everything) and V2V (vehicle-to-vehicle) ability, forward-thinking regional councils, the Smart City Movement Centre and from next year, the National Automotive Development Centre. Jaguar Land Rover are working carefully or leading all of these efforts therefore this is the very best environment to accelerate our advancement of linked and self-governing innovations,” discusses Colin Lee, Jaguar Land Rover V2X supervisor.

Part of the University of Warwick, the National Automotive Development Centre is under building and construction in Coventry. As soon as opened it’s charged with offering an emergency of research study ability integrating automobile know-how nationally and globally and will even more reinforce Coventry’s position as an ingenious vehicle tech center.
