WHAT MAKES SMLL UNIQUE
With driverless vehicles on the horizon, the future of A to B is about to be written.
There are thousands of answers out there waiting to transform everything we know about mobility.
Smart Mobility Living Lab (SMLL) is one of the best places in the world to find them.
SMLL is the world’s most advanced urban testbed for connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs) of its kind, using public and private roads in London to develop and validate new mobility and transport technologies in a real-world connected environment.
It’s going to help us all build safer, more intelligent and better joined-up transport systems, turning the mobility products and services of the future from innovative ideas into commercial reality.
As Europe’s only megacity and an expected population of more than 10m by 2041, London is home to people from all walks of life who are willing to embrace and test new modes of transport and services. The city’s transport system is also internationally recognised as effective, integrated and safe. And unlike many other major cities, the London road system is highly complex and has many modes of transport, as well as pedestrians, interacting at once, making it the ultimate test environment for CAVs.
Dual testing facility
SMLL lets you test your CAV technology safely and responsibly in two different environments, on public and private roads. The Royal Borough of Greenwich site allows more advanced testing and trials in a complex real-world environment, while the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park environment offers a more open, campus-like setting. The interplay between these two environments gives you the unique opportunity to build and learn from two distinct but connected datasets, helping you refine your business models and attract investment more quickly.
We’ve fostered a truly collaborative research eco-system in London. We bring together a range of experience and expertise, from technology providers to academics, all learning from each other to overcome the challenges and realise the promise of bringing CAVs and future transport services to market. This makes SMLL much more than just a test environment. It helps you find and partner with others to shape your products and services and move quickly towards commercialisation.
Everything we do at SMLL in London will set the pace for mobility across the world for generations.
The journey starts here.
