UltraSoC today announced that it has secured £2m in support from Innovate UK, the innovation agency of the UK Government), for an ambitious co-funded project that will improve the safety and security of tomorrow’s connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs).
The project, a collaboration between UltraSoC, the Universities of Southampton and Coventry, and cybersecurity specialist consultancy Copper Horse, aims to improve the security and safety of citizens and infrastructure by developing the world’s first on-chip monitoring solution for CAVs.
The project is based on UltraSoC’s embedded analytics technology, which allows technology companies to design self-monitoring capabilities into the microchips that power their products.
Machine Learning (ML) experts from the University of Southampton will work alongside UltraSoC engineers to develop algorithms and code to intelligently identify security and safety issues, while the Institute of Future Transport at Coventry University will develop a testbed demonstrator representing a full-scale automotive functional architecture to prove the resulting solutions. Finally, Copper Horse will model cybersecurity scenarios and test the robustness of the project’s output.
