Horiba MIRA to develop safety guidance for the HumanDrive project


Horiba MIRA has been assigned to develop safety guidance for the HumanDrive initiative. The project, led by Nissan’s European Technical Centre as part of Renault-Nissan Alliance research activities, will culminate in the most complex journey yet attempted across the UK without human driver input.

The aim is to develop a vehicle that will emulate a natural human driving style, drawing upon the expertise of a range of organizations, including Aimsun, Atkins, Cranfield University, Highways England, Hitachi, SBD Automotive, Transport Systems Catapult and the University of Leeds.

Horiba MIRA will develop safety case guidance for using AI in automated vehicles and will also support the development of proving ground environment test scenarios prior to evaluation on UK roads.

Chris Reeves, head of connected autonomous vehicles at Horiba MIRA, said, “We are delighted to be a core partner in this consortium working at the cutting edge of automated vehicles. Connected and autonomous vehicles will bring huge benefits to society and this project is integral to delivering the UK’s strategy to accelerate the economic benefits these technologies will bring. Horiba MIRA will build upon its extensive CAV expertise to understand how AI systems can be used to enhance the safety of automated vehicles.”
