Connected Vehicle Data Funding Competition Launched

The Department for Transport has launched a competition to demonstrate connected vehicle applications that provide real benefit to local authorities – to access data on road condition information and asset management. The competition will provide £500,000 for local authority projects costing between £30,000 and £100,000 which will:

  • demonstrate the capability of connected vehicle data;
  • improve the quality of road condition and asset management data;
  • provide the business case for more widespread deployment across a number of highway authorities;
  • enable the development of smart asset strategies based on harvested intelligence; and 
  • help support innovation within the private sector supply chain.

The competition has a total funding value of £500,000.
