UGV and UAV Test Lanes
RACE TEST hosts Europe’s only standardised test facility for ground and air-based robots.
Developed alongside the US National Institute of Standards and Technology, RACE’s test lanes give developers a chance to measure their performance against international standards while giving end users a space to impartially compare robotics in a controlled environment, and an opportunity for consistent and standardised operator training.
Connected Autonomous Vehicle Testbed
RACE operates as one of the UK’s only semi-controlled test beds allowing the development of driverless cars, sensor technology and intelligent traffic systems in a safe environment.
Developed with Millbrook Proving Ground as part of the Meridian testbeds group, RACE operates a 10km road network in the heart of Oxfordshire.
With facilities for both closed track and simulated public road testing, these sites have state of the art autonomous vehicle pit lanes, garages and electric vehicle charging. RACE has the ability to host testing for short term periods or long-term tenants developing autonomous technology.
National Nuclear Users Facility
The National Nuclear User Facility for Robotics (NNUF-R) is an EPSRC funded national nuclear user facility to support UK academia and industry deliver ground-breaking, impactful research in robotics and artificial intelligence for application in extreme and challenging nuclear environments.
