Our research project

ServCity is taking an integrated approach to solving the numerous challenges around implementing autonomous vehicles in our cities.

Deploying these new mobility services cannot work if they are introduced in silos. There are too many dependencies and factors outside of service providers’ field of vision to work independently.

That’s why autonomous mobility services need to be looked at in a joined-up way.

And while we are bold and ambitious in our thinking, for us, it’s not about visions of a future far away. It’s about the here and the now. We’re taking a practical, pragmatic approach, so that urban policy makers and authorities can start to really advance their future mobility strategies.

Safety

The safety of the public and our safety drivers is of paramount importance during the trials for ServCity.  The chart shows how safety is being managed and the Safety Case is being administered.


Our aim is to create a blueprint – a set of insights and guidelines – for how autonomous mobility services can become an everyday experience in our cities, for everyone. Our research findings will help provide practical guidance for policymakers, budget holders, transport providers, technology providers – and anyone with a role to play in future mobility.
