Registration opens for Europe’s first open driverless car test event

As the launch event in the Self Driving Track Days series of driverless technology test track series, aimed at those working on autonomous vehicles and driverless technologies, we’re providing two full days of access to the Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground on 15th and 16th November 2016.

The event will play host to car manufacturers, university researchers, and organisations that have already developed driverless vehicle technology, and provide two days of test track time for data gathering, testing, systems diagnostics and exploration, as well as an opportunity to discuss business, transport, autonomous vehicles and technology with fellow professionals and attending media.

We’re inviting a number of car and technology suppliers from around the world (some of whom have already confirmed they will be shipping autonomous vehicles over) but as a UK company ourselves, we’re also keen to support the demonstration and visibility of as much UK research and technology as possible.

This might be include fully driverless vehicles (personal transport pods, cars or small buses) or robotically controlled drones used for delivery, or development platforms for sensor systems, human-machine interface research, or articificial intelligence-controlled motorised systems.

A number of international media outlets have confirmed they’ll be attending already.

We are prioritising free entry to organisations with working driverless vehicles (to maximise media coverage) but if, for example, you have a development platform or prototype on which other technologies could be combined, then please get in touch with me directly by email –

We are working closely with leading autonomy components supplier AutonomouStuff to create “driverless perception kits” – for organisations, researchers and universities to have more affordable access to the hardware needed to develop driverless vehicles.  The kit concept and contents will also be launched at this event.

Regrettably we are not able to accommodate spectators, however this will be a great opportunity to test your technologies and gain exposure to colleagues around the industry, share knowledge and network, as well as have opportunities for international media coverage.

Please note the entry fees are refundable deposits, per vehicle.
