The Centre of Excellence for Testing & Research of Autonomous Vehicles – NTU (CETRAN) was opened in 2017 by Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore), the Land Transport Authority (LTA) and JTC.

To support the Land Transport Authority’s (LTA) development of test requirements and standards to deploy AVs in Singapore, CETRAN is supporting as a Centre of Excellence. CETRAN does not directly develop new technologies for AVs, rather, it generates fundamental research on how these systems should operate, develop testing requirements, and establish an international standard for AVs.
