Centre of Excellence for Testing & Research of Autonomous Vehicles – NTU 

To support the Land Transport Authority’s (LTA) development of test requirements and standards to deploy AVs in Singapore, ERI@N is leading the Centre of Excellence for Testing & Research of AVs – NTU (CETRAN). The 1.8ha facility is located at CleanTech Park.

While CETRAN does not directly develop new technologies for AVs, it will generate fundamental research on how these systems should operate, develop testing requirements, and establish an international standard for AVs.

Safety of passengers is highly prioritised in the development of AVs. Helping the public and transport regulators trust self-driven road vehicles — not just in Singapore but around the world — is the aim of CETRAN. The track testing has the dual function of testing the most critical functionality in the real world, while at the same time validating that the simulation in the virtual world is correct.
