Business Problem

In March 2020, the government announced funding for tests to aid the pandemic

Grant Shapps, secretary of state for transport, said a planned trial of automated technology would be brought forward to start testing at the end of March; there was an urgent need for drone trials to start sooner rather than later.

£28m of funding was given by the UK government for this project
