Our connected and autonomous vehicles programme is focused on the delivery of four key services:
- Deliver and maintain vehicle to infrastructure (V2X) communication systems for national and local transport authorities
- Advise national and local transport authorities on how to realise the benefits of CAV
- Collect and analyse CAV data with strategic partners to improve the safety and security of the transport network
- Provide cyber-security assurance for new technology connecting to transport networks.
We are delivering these services on the UK’s largest real-world testbed, one of the UK’s first pilot connected vehicle corridors and the UK’s first HGV platooning trial, amongst others.
This expertise is backed up by over 150 years of experience in the delivery of national infrastructure projects across the transportation, energy and water sectors. We have been improving peoples’ lives since 1865. We deliver services across consultancy, complex project delivery, technology integration and implementation and asset optimisation.
For most of the last two centuries, the solution to infrastructure reaching capacity or becoming life expired was to build more of it: more roads, more railway lines, more water treatment works.
In recent decades it has become clear that we can’t always build our way out of our most complex challenges. What society demands from us now is to get more efficiency out of our existing assets. To be smarter. Here at Costain our clients are asking us to provide more intelligent infrastructure solutions that will enable them to be smarter and more efficient.
They want to understand exactly how their existing assets are operating, how those assets can be used more efficiently, and how they can maximise capacity. The best way to achieve this is by integrating engineering and programme management skills with digital technology capabilities. This is certainly the case when it comes to solving congested roads and smart traffic management which our of recent report which is available to download below.
Technology is available now and being trialled which in the near future can make a real difference to our lives.
