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 awarded:
Total Project Cost: £9m
Delivery Partner: Cranfield University
Project Status: Control tower for MUEAVI opened in March 2018. MUEAVI is fully operational alongside Cranfield University's Intelligent Mobility Engineering Centre (IMEC). Clients currently using the facility include Nissan, Oxbotica, Jaguar Landrover, Honda and Westfield. Current projects using MUEAVI include HumanDrive and CORAM projects, led by Innovate UK.
Projected Outputs: 156 new jobs, 205 people assisted with learning, 300 people assisted into work, 267m² floorspace directly developed, 12,060m² facilities developed/improved, 0.8 miles of new road
