Gyrodrive Original Equipment Development

In this project, Coventry University has joined with GKN Hybrid Power, GKN AutoStructures, S&S Windings and Alexander Dennis Limited, to develop a Gyrodrive system solution that will be optimised for fitment to buses as original equipment.


METRIC maps regional transport innovation capacity and identifies the competitive advantage of regions. 

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).

Open Flight Deck

This project aims to develop an accessible platform for the flight deck which supports new technologies, new applications such as crew decision aids harnessing big data, and 21st century HMI such as touch, voice and haptics.


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.

Digi CAV

Investigating the feasibility of building a connected autonomous vehicles (CAV) simulation platform that enables plugging in external heterogeneous components.

Understanding user trust after software malfunctions and cyber intrusions of digital displays: A use case of automated automotive systems

This research investigates the cyber security, human factors and trust aspects of screen failures during automated driving.

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.

Preventing Motion Sickness in Automated Vehicles

The overall aim of this JIP accordingly is to avoid or minimise the occurrence of motion sickness in automated vehicles. The project aims at realising this by explicating the underlying causes of motion sickness in automated vehicles, adopt reliable, sensitive, and valid methods to assess its occurrence, and sketch ways it can be mitigated by adapted (automated) vehicle design and/or other countermeasures.

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.

Transport Innovation Gender Observatory (TInnGO)

TInnGO, the Transport Research Observatory, is a pan European observatory for gender smart transport innovation, that provides a nexus for data collection, analysis, dissemination of gender mainstreaming tools and open innovation, encouraging smart mobility.

Gendered Innovation Living Labs (GILL)

GILL will be implemented through an iterative co-creation approach structured on a four-phases cycle - understand, co-design, implement, evaluate - repeated twice to incorporate the feedbacks and evaluation results in fine-tuned and validated results.

Multi-Area Connected Automated Mobility (MACAM)

The Multi-Area Connected Automated Mobility (MACAM) project is a collaborative initiative. It encompasses a multi-city, multi-operator, and multi-purpose self-driving trial. 

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.

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.

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.

Midlands Future Mobility

IFTC’s role in MFM supports future CAV testbed trials by developing guidance and case studies to assist users with test definition and planning.

SIMUSAFE (SIMUlator of behavioural aspects for SAFEr transport)

The goal of SIMUSAFE following the FESTA-V model methodology is to develop realistic multi-agent behavioural models in a transit environment where researchers will be able to monitor and introduce changes in every aspect, gathering data not available in real world conditions.

Flood Ultra-cognitive Dendrite (FLUD)

The main aim of FLUD is to develop an intelligent and cost-effective automatic monitoring, and forecasting platform for flooding in urban environments.

Healthy Gardeners

Biomechanical software has been developed at Coventry University which has the capability of analysing musculoskeletal systems.
