ANGOKA technology safeguards driverless vehicles at live logistics showcase in London and Oxford

March 29, 2022

BELFAST, UK, March 29 – ANGOKA Ltd. has celebrated the successful deployment of two cybersecure, teleoperated vehicles on open roads in collaboration with its ENCODE partners at a live showcase event in London and Oxford. The twin event marks a historic turning point in the commercial opportunities for using secure teleoperated vehicles in supply chain logistics.  

ENCODE, a collaborative industrial research project launched by Innovate UK in 2021 and made possible with funding by the UK’s Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CCAV), aimed to accelerate the commercial deployment of connected and automated vehicle (CAV) technology in urban transport networks.  

ANGOKA collaborated with StreetDrone, Coventry University, TRL, Smart Mobility Living Lab: London and Oxfordshire County Council to successfully deploy the two secure multi-driver Nissan E NV200 vans in London and Oxford from a control hub in Oxford, demonstrating the commercial value of operating a teleoperated fleet of commercial vehicles safely and efficiently.  

As Project ENCODE’s cybersecurity lead, ANGOKA’s involvement focused on ensuring continuity of service by implementing measures that embed trust and resilience within the teleoperated networks. These include certifying and securing end-to-end connectivity between remote operators and vehicles. Integrating ANGOKA’s patented technology into the systems has enabled the operation to function as planned in line with all safety measures, even when experiencing simulated cyber attacks.   

Yuri Andersson, Co-Founder and CEO of ANGOKA, says: “Teleoperation has the potential to transform the logistics industry by radically reducing costs and increasing productivity. However, this will only happen if the new technology is completely secure. Today, ANGOKA has demonstrated that secure teleoperation of logistics vehicles is a reality. By creating trust in the communication, we are overcoming one of the most important barriers to adoption of this vital new technology.”  

The live demonstration of teleoperated vehicles marked the culmination of six-months of collaboration between the project’s partner companies, who, alongside the UK government’s Department of Transport and National Cyber Security Centre, will use the project’s findings and data gathered from monitoring the test vehicles to inform new cybersecurity processes and regulations for the autonomous vehicles market.
