WMG announced that it is partnering with the West Midlands Combined Authority for driverless capable vehicle testing in a new £20M Smart City Mobility Center at Warwickshire. The Mobility Data Institute brings together WMG’s research and Jaguar Land Rover’s research and engineering capabilities.

Jaguar Land Rover engineers and WMG researchers will work together at Wellesbourne to design and engineer connected, driverless capable, prototype electric modular architectures. These will be tested in real world conditions alongside a specially designed 5G communications network on the University of Warwick’s main campus.
