Europe’s first open testing event for autonomous vehicle development will take place in the UK later this year, as start-up company, Self Driving Track Days, announces a series of events across Europe to help accelerate the development of self-driving car technology.

Aimed at teams developing autonomous vehicle technologies and ADAS, these private test-track events, which will be held every three months, will provide safe and secure venues to conduct research and development on a number of tracks in a variety of locations around Europe, starting in the UK at Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground in November.

Co-founder Alex Lawrence-Berkeley, said, “These track days are for innovators, inventors and researchers. Teams at commercial, academic or hobbyist level can explore autonomous vehicle technology in a safe, affordable and collaborative environment – and have access to specialist training that only experienced industry professionals can deliver.”
