As an ambitious and innovative university, our research makes a tangible difference to the way we live. Coventry University is already known for delivering research that makes a significant contribution to a number of global challenges.
Our Research Centres focus on a range of real-world issues under five key themes.
The development of new technologies will make a significant impact on future vehicle design. This impact will take two forms; on the design process due to innovative tool development and on the attributes of the resultant vehicle design. This PhD will focus on researching and developing new techniques that will transform automotive design techniques and processes. The interdisciplinary nature of this project and will focus on multiple new technologies such as augmented and virtual reality, additive manufacturing and projection mapping, therefore applicants from a wide range of disciplines are encouraged to apply, particular interest would include, but is not limited to, Computer and Software Engineers, Electrical Engineers and Product Design Engineers.
The institutional or factual relationships between home states and their emigrants have always existed, at least in the traditional form of consular protection, or in very specific areas, such as the economy (i.e. remittances). However, the last decades have witnessed a large expansion of institutions, policies, and other state-sponsored mechanisms all around the globe, linking home states and emigrants / diasporas well beyond the traditional areas.
Vehicle platooning – vehicles travelling in close proximity nose-to-tail – has been identified as a potential method for significantly reducing vehicle energy consumption. Many demonstrations and trials have taken place (and continue currently) but none has, to date, delivered a comprehensive and implementable set of recommendations as to how the benefits might be delivered cost effectively and safely. This project will have at its core the objective to ensure that the range of potential impacts and benefits is properly and robustly articulated, based on sound research methodologies.
