METPEX: A MEasurement Tool to determine the quality of the Passenger EXperience

METPEX is a research project funded in the context of the 7th Framework Programme of the EU, aiming to develop and evaluate a standardised tool to measure passenger experience across whole journeys.


The ASSURED CAV (Connected and Autonomous Vehicle) Parking project’s purpose is to create a bespoke and realistic, controlled set of parking environments to test and support the development of current and future connected and automated parking solutions.

AREA – Augmented Reality Enhanced Assembly

This explored the use of augmented reality in the context of manufacturing assembly workers required to conduct complex product assemblies (such as high performance battery packs for electric vehicles) with increased efficiency.

Trade-off Management between Safety and Cybersecurity (TOMSAC)

This research is aimed at assuring cybersecurity and safety of complex CPS/IoT systems, which arise from convergence of Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) and Internet of Things (IoT).

Future Flight Deck

Developing new pilot-centred interface technologies to improve situation awareness, decision making and improve the availability of aircraft in adverse weather. 

UK Connected Intelligent Transport Environment (UK CITE)

The overall project aim is to create one of the world’s most advanced environments for connected and autonomous driving.

Evaluating Cyber Security Evidence for Policy Advice: The Other Human Dimension (ECSEPA)

This project focuses on policy makers in the UK, specifically those civil servants who provide short and long term policy advice, either in response to specific crisis incidents or in the context of longer term planning for capacity building.


InnEx will develop a highly innovative lightweight exhaust system for forced induction diesel and petrol automotive vehicles. 

Trusted Intelligent Connected Autonomous Vehicles (TIC-IT)

Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAV) are expected to bring huge benefits to society. The Trusted Intelligent CAV (TIC-IT) facility will be critical to this, providing a realistic, controlled high speed, limit-handling and fully connected environment.

Virtual Exhaust Prototyping System (VExPro)

VExPro aims to optimise a lightweight exhaust system encompassing areas of thermo-mechanical, mechanical, acoustics, vibration, manufacturing and light-weighting analysis and design in a High Performance Computing (HPC) environment.

Supporting Urban Integrated Transport Systems (SUITS)

SUITS is one of the three projects of the EU’s CIVITAS 2020 initiative focusing on sustainable urban mobility plans.

Modelling NOx Reduction by Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) appropriate for Light-Duty Vehicles under Steady State and Transient Conditions

The main aim of this project was the development and validation of an engineering design tool for modelling selective catalytic reduction (SCR) on a diesel after-treatment system under steady state and transient conditions.

Interdisciplinary Training Network in Multi-Actuated Ground Vehicles (ITEAM)

ITEAM is aimed at establishing and sustainably maintaining the European training network by training strong specialists to research and develop cutting-edge technologies in the field of multi-actuated ground vehicles (MAGV).
