Located at the heart of the UK’s transport network, England’s East Midlands is perfectly placed to access European markets. This contributes to its position at the leading edge of developments in the field of telematics and location-based technologies, a growing part of the communications industry.

We are home to MIRA, which is renowned as a leading design, testing, consultancy and certification organisation. By integrating innovative design and simulation techniques with validation in over 30 major test facilities, MIRA provides pioneering expertise across the entire range of transport systems.

MIRA now houses innovITS-ADVANCE, a collaboration between innovITS, the UK centre for excellence in Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) and technologies for sustainable mobility, MIRA Ltd and TRL, the UK’s Transport Research Laboratory. 

Its key aim is to create a world-leading technical centre to allow the faster, safer testing and development of intelligent transport technologies, innovations and products. Systems which may be developed there include collision avoidance and mitigation, traffic management and vulnerable road user detection.
