Our Research


Our research in Mobility & Transport investigates future transport systems, including the growing influence of the internet and connectivity. It covers automotive, aerospace, maritime and rail.

The focus is on safe, efficient and accessible transport integrating the strongest research elements in design, computing and engineering. It builds on the historic strengths of Coventry University, including the largest automotive design course in the world and our international reputation in automotive and aviation engineering

Future transport systems have a number of high level aims including ambitions to eliminate road fatalities, reduce congestion, to provide users with seamless integrated and connected transport systems, to eliminate emissions and to develop vehicles and systems that use lightweight, efficient and recycled materials.

Consumers will also want to have comfortable and predictable journeys that increasingly allow them to make use of the time for work and leisure. In this area automation and connectivity have a massive role to play.

Our centre has current projects in all of the following areas: vehicle design and styling, vehicle electrification, structural optimisation and light-weighting, wireless sensing, vehicle dynamics and safety, aerospace engineering, control systems, cyber security and human systems integration.
