Welcome to the Institute for Future Transport and Cities
Professor Carl Perrin, CEO of the Institute for Future Transport and Cities
Welcome to the Institute for Future Transport and Cities. Right now, the Transport sector is going through a technological revolution, with the low-carbon agenda and the move towards vehicle autonomy creating an unprecedented demand for research and development. Coventry University has long been associated with the Transport sector, through our teaching, research and consultancy. Our Institute for Future Transport and Cities brings together world class expertise in disciplines across art and design, human factors, engineering, manufacturing, computer systems and business studies to deliver our vision of “safe and sustainable transport solutions fit for the cities of the future”. We work across three core themes of;
1. training and skills development,
2. research to demonstrate new technologies,
3. commercialisation of this new technology to deliver impact and business growth.
