Coventry University has worked with companies such as MIRA, InnovaITS Ltd and Jaguar Land Rover, organisations including the MoD and academic institutions to develop new ideas and concepts.
One such area is, Serious Games International, SGIL who have created (in partnership with the Met Police London) a crowd management simulation, iCrowd, for the Police and Security Services incorporating crowd dynamics to support in the effective dispersal of a crowd. This is to address the challenge of Crowd Management and Public Order in respect of protests, public unrest, inside and outside political interference all leading to different scales of street violence and rioting that can lead to the overturning of the ruling Party as we have seen in Tunisia, Libya and Egypt.
The University has also been at the forefront of global transport design and engineering for over a century and are tackling the challenges faced by the transport industry in moving to smarter, safer, economical methods of transport. For example using computer simulations to design global safety systems.
