Belfast-based cyber security developer to support ground-breaking projects including ‘Harlander’, ‘V-CAL’ and ‘Sunderland Advanced Mobility Shuttle’
Belfast-based cyber security developer Angoka has secured central roles in three major ground transportation projects.
This follows a successful public competition issued by the Centre for Connected Autonomous Vehicles (CCAV).
The three projects include ‘Harlander’ which is providing an autonomous passenger transport system working with Belfast Harbour Commissioners and BT among others; ‘V-CAL’, a collaboration led by the North East Automotive Alliance (NEAA) located between Vantec and Nissan Motor Company in Sunderland and focused on autonomous and remote operations of heavy goods vehicles and the ‘Sunderland Advanced Mobility Shuttle’, a project defining the future of urban passenger transport.
Angoka chief executive Yuri Andersson has welcomed the appointment of the firm to these ground-breaking projects.
“We are delighted to join these consortia and look forward to contributing our unique cyber security technology to protect critical data and to ensure the safe and secure operation of autonomous vehicles,” said Mr Andersson.
“Each of the three projects covers different aspects of a whole systems approach to the safe future of integrated mobility and ensures that we can cement our market-leading position in cyber security for smart and connected mobility.”
Steve Berry, Angoka’s executive chairman, explained: “The fact that we are involved in several high-profile projects is a testament to the critical importance of Angoka’s cyber security solutions and their applicability across the full 360 degrees of use-cases in advanced mobility – from securing traffic infrastructure to teleoperations for autonomous vehicles and secure operations centres (SOC).
