Multi-use Environment Autonomous Vehicle Innovation (MUEAVI)

7th February 2018

Multi-User Environment for Autonomous Vehicle Innovation (MUEAVI) is a purpose-built experimental facility for the rapid development of on and off-highway, ground and airborne autonomous solutions. This includes vehicles, infrastructure, data, logistics, environment, sensors, and their implementation and management.

MUEAVI is a transport corridor that runs through the middle of Cranfield University campus. All of the data from MUEAVI is relayed in near real-time from the communication network running alongside both sides of the road into the Control Tower. 

The MUEAVI road is being actively integrated into campus life and has been opened for staff, students and visitors to use, with ‘smart road signage’ design projects currently being considered. This will advise road users when MUEAVI is open; closed off for trials, prior to full integration and what trials are taking place.  A further layer of sensing technologies is now being added to the MUEAVI capability in the form of extremely high resolution and thermal imaging cameras, LIDAR sensors and MUEAVI bespoke RADAR components. 

MUEAVI is also part of the campus-wide ‘Living Lab’ project which is being led by academics in our School of Water, Energy and Environment.

Funding stream: Local Growth Fund (LGF)
LGF amount: £3m
Total project costs: £9m
Delivery partner: Cranfield University
Project status: Opened March 2018
Project outputs: This project will enable 105 learners and 959 employees to benefit from improved facilities.
