The successful claim relates to the challenges overcome during the development of the Virtual Autonomous Vehicle Simulation Environment (VASE) project.  This application intends to provide a scalable test-bed for manufacturers to test algorithms in realistic virtual conditions.

The client used the bespoke big data platform across large computational clusters. They also succeeded in building out actual simulation models. Furthermore, software was created to automatically input shapes into simulations by analysing laser-scanned ‘point clouds’.

At R&D Expert, we are increasingly identifying many companies working in the sector that could benefit from this important source of funding. Many more businesses can increase funding for further innovation by claiming as much as they are entitled to in R&D Tax Credits for Luxury Cosmetics product development.

Unfortunately, due to confusion over the government-backed funding, many companies are yet to claim the tax relief or cashback they deserve. We generally see businesses falling into two categories. First of all, businesses that are yet to claim at all as they do not realise they are eligible. Another scenario we regularly see are businesses not receiving the credit they deserve because they have not optimised their previous claims. However, we have many examples of previous success stories. So, it is always worth speaking to a Specialist. Because only the minority of cases are straightforward.
