In the near future connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs) are expected to become widely used across the U.K. To ensure a smooth deployment, researchers from WMG, University of Warwick undertook real-world testing of four academic innovations in the IoT-enabled Transport and Mobility Demonstrator project funded by Lloyd’s Register Foundation.

The testing looked at how the vehicles will connect to each other, as well as to roadside infrastructure, and the roadside infrastructures to each other.

Warwick says that the four innovations tested were developed within the PETRAS Internet of Things Research Hub and aimed to improve the security, privacy and safety of future connected vehicles.

The four new innovations included:

  • Group Signature
  • Authentication Prioritization
  • Decentralized PKI
  • Decentralized PKI with Pseudonyms
