Entries open for Self-Driving Industry Awards 2024

Entries for the second annual Self-Driving Industry Awards are now open. Presented by Carsofthefuture.co.uk, the awards look  to recognise excellence in automated mobility, in the UK and worldwide.

Last yea’s inaugural event saw companies from four continents attend a ceremony at Margate’s Turner Contemporary gallery, with Stagecoach and Alexander Dennis winning the headline Vehicle of the Year award for Project CAVForth, while Aftermarket’s very own Editor Alex Wells also received a Special Recognition Award.

The Self-Driving Industry Awards 2024 will follow the same peer-led safety-focused format, with 10 categories – Aftermarket, Design, Hardware, Insurance, Legal, Research, Software, Testing, Trust and V2X – gaining the right to nominate an individual and a vehicle for the top honours.

Carsofthefuture.co.uk Editor Neil Kennett, said: “The first Self-Driving Industry Awards exceeded all expectations, so the only big change for 2024 is greater emphasis on user experience in the Trust category. This reflects the fact that self-driving is becoming an everyday reality for ever more people.

“From robotaxis in America to the CAVForth buses in Scotland, a growing number of operators are providing an increasingly diverse range of safe and efficient passenger and freight services. These prestigious awards recognise and celebrate the world’s best new automated mobility products, and the incredible people behind them.”

The deadline for entries is 5pm on Friday 20 September, with all shortlisted candidates receiving an invitation to the awards ceremony.
