Fusion Processing relocates to Future SpaceBristol-based Fusion Processing (www.fusionproc.com), which specialises in developing sensors and control systems for driverless cars and detectors for vehicle safety systems, has moved into larger premises after securing a series of new contracts.

The company — founded in 2012 — has relocated to Future Space, Bristol’s new tech and science hub on UWE Bristol’s Frenchay campus, in order to expand its 10-strong team in line with its growing order book.

The company has developed CAVstar — a complete sensor and control system that enables vehicles to operate autonomously.

It is part of a UK consortium that has signed a £30 million deal to supply 200 driverless cars to South Korea. It has also been awarded a contract to provide its CycleEye product to Mercedes Benz refuse vehicles in Ireland.

This uses radar and a low-light camera to detect vulnerable road users close to large vehicles; it then warns the driver.

Chief executive Jim Hutchinson said: “We’ve secured some fantastic new contracts this year, and the company is growing in line with its target market segments.

“We needed a new base that would allow us to keep developing our products from the ground up for a wider pool of clients, and Future Space provided the ideal solution.”

As well as the CAVstar and CycleEye products, the company also provides traffic analysis through its TrafficTrak product.

This uses radar to analyse traffic flows and gives traffic control centres modal data, such as the number of cyclists, cars and large vehicles passing a given location; it can also detect stationary vehicles.
