TASCC: Towards Autonomy - Smart And Connected Control

TASCC: TASCC: Towards Autonomy - Smart And Connected Control

The EPSRC Engineering and Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) Themes in partnership with Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) are inviting outline proposals that explore research in the area of 'Smart and Connected Control' around the central challenge of moving towards a fully autonomous car.

This call is being issued as part of the EPSRC-JLR strategic partnership. Funds of up to £10 million are available. We expect to support between four and six research projects, up to five years in duration, subject to the quality of the proposals received.

The first stage of this call is an invitation for Outlines, and will be followed by Full Proposals. Applicants will be interviewed at the full proposal stage by an expert panel.

As part of this activity there will be a series of workshops to develop ideas and interactions with JLR and other research groups. To register to attend the first TASCC workshop on 09 December 2014, please visit the TASCC workshop registration page.

As a joint funder JLR will work closely with successful applicants.
