Special Interest Group in Particulate Matter Filtration Flows in Automotive and Marine Applications Current Projects

Institute for Future Transport & Cities

The group's focus is particulate matter filtration flows, in aftertreatment and other systems. With rapidly tightening emissions regulations for land and sea transport, this research area urgently needs a boost, which will be facilitated by bringing together industry and academia, as well as traditionally separated marine and automotive research communities.


Optimisable system-level thermal models for power electronic converters Current Projects

Institute for Future Transport & Cities

This project is focused on the design of reliable yet efficient thermal models underpinning an optimal design framework for power electronic converters. Due to the high number of times these models must be evaluated during the optimisation process, they are required to be of low computational cost (so-called ‘optimisable’).


Preventing Motion Sickness in Automated Vehicles Current Projects

Institute for Future Transport & Cities

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) Current Projects

Institute for Future Transport & Cities

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


CIVITAS SUITS Current Projects

Institute for Future Transport & Cities

SUITS (Sustainable Urban Integrated Transport Systems: Transferable tools for S-M local authorities) aim is to substantially increase the capacity of Small-Medium local authorities to develop and implement sustainable, inclusive, integrated and accessible transport strategies, policies, technologies, practices, procedures, tools, measures and intelligent transport systems that recognize the end-to-end travel experiences of all users and freight.


Flood Ultra-cognitive Dendrite (FLUD) Current Projects

Institute for Future Transport & Cities

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


METPEX Current Projects

Institute for Future Transport & Cities

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.


Ultrasonically Enabled Low Temperature Immersion and Electroless Metallisation (ULTIEMet) Current Projects

Institute for Future Transport & Cities

Reducing the temperatures and process times of electroless and immersion plating processes using ultrasound.


KTP with NPL Current Projects

Institute for Future Transport & Cities

To develop a novel process to deposit and attach silver nanoparticles on to fibres enabling the selective metallisation of fabrics.


Gyrodrive Original Equipment Development Current Projects

Institute for Future Transport & Cities

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


METRIC Current Projects

Institute for Future Transport & Cities

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


Future Flight Deck Project Current Projects

Institute for Future Transport & Cities

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


ERGO WORK Current Projects

Institute for Future Transport & Cities

ERGO WORK is a collaboration of academic and business organisations in 6 countries, to understand the barriers that disabled people face in the EU workplace and to tackle some of these through improved workplace Ergonomics.


Work Buddy: Supporting people with learning difficulties learn and recall new tasks Current Projects

Institute for Future Transport & Cities

Work Buddy is an android-based app that seeks to support people with learning disabilities to learn and recall new, or infrequently performed tasks, at home, when travelling and in the workplace.


Healthy Gardeners Current Projects

Institute for Future Transport & Cities

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


WheelSense Current Projects

Institute for Future Transport & Cities

WheelSense is a portable, easy to use, simple approach to measuring the stability and centre of gravity of wheelchair systems.
