Our Research Opportunities
Coventry University's research strategy is underpinned by a £250m investment in research, our estate and facilities. It also:
- enables our academics to apply fresh and original approaches to key research challenges
- informs their teaching
- provides opportunities for postgraduate students to participate in major research projects.
We currently offer a variety of PhD studentships to outstanding applicants, to areas of research undertaken by our Research Centres and our industrial collaborations.

Visible Light Communication for Swarm Robots
This project aims to study Visible light communication (VLC) as an alternative to existing RF technology in swarm robots to increase communication speed. VLC system benefits from availability of huge license-free bandwidth which is ideal for communication among a large number of robots. The study aims to overcome the limitation of swarm robots by replacing/complementing the RF technology.
Long-Lived Wireless Sensor Networks - Providing better energy solutions for refugees
This project will focus on investigating sensors and server failure modes in wireless networked sensor systems. You will develop both theoretical and practical solutions for preserving network life. These solutions will account for the application level data needs and the viability of the deployed network as an informational decision-enabling tool in specific real-life settings.
