A project on connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs) has highlighted the “urgent need” for a national road transportation cybersecurity program in the UK.
ResiCAV explored the feasibility of creating a UK Cybersecurity ‘Centre of Excellence’ to detect, understand and respond to emerging threats in real time.
The three-month program was support by funding from The Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles and run by Zenzic and Innovate UK.
Anthony Martin, head of vehicle resilience technologies at Horiba MIRA, said, “Given the sheer size and complexity of the issue, we’re incredibly proud of the world-leading research the consortium has delivered over a very short time span. This research has successfully demonstrated how a Cybersecurity ‘Centre of Excellence’ can support future transport systems to develop real-time responsiveness to cybersecurity threats.”
ResiCAV is a consortium consisting of Horiba MIRA, Thales, BT, WMG at the University of Warwick, the Centre for Modelling and Simulation, Oxfordshire County Council, AESIN Techworks, the University of South Wales, the University of Bristol, Coventry University and the National Digital Exploitation Centre.
