On the 7th of February, the Centre for Postdigital Cultures, a new Research Centre at Coventry University, held it’s ‘soft’ launch in the form a day-long event on the top floor of the Lanchester Library, where the CPC is now based.
Registration for the fourth inter-disciplinary conference, led by the Centre for Business in Society for academics and practitioners in the field, is now open.
Could edible insects play an important role in tackling a growing global humanitarian problem?
From Formula One battery manufacturing, to food sustainability in the form of insects, our latest issue of Innovate has arrived.
Creating safe and sustainable transport solutions fit for the cities of the futures.
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.
This project aims to synthesise Pd-free nanoparticles e.g. a single metal, alloy, composite etc. Novel methodologies will be developed enabling a comparison of the chemical nature and electrochemical/catalytic activity of the nanoparticles thereby gaining a fundamental understanding of their functionality. The project will also, for the first time, consider bio-inspired catalysts e.g. enzymes that catalyse formaldehyde oxidation. The use of novel catalysts may enable the employment of benign reducing agents eliminating the use of formaldehyde.
This PhD project propose to study effective methods to monitor car passenger’s health and wellness, with the aim to design and develop a wearable monitoring device to relieve the constraint of the position of a person in the vehicle. The project will involve exciting multidisciplinary aspects including engineering analysis, embedded system design, artificial intelligent, psychology, health science and product design. This project will also involve collaboration with technology companies such as Interactive Coventry and National Instruments.
Research at CU has shown that the implementation of automatic safety features will change and reduce accident impact speeds as well as impact locations on the vehicle, leading to the question whether current vehicle architectures will be adequate for 2045. With the drive to design vehicle as light as possible, there is an opportunity to define the vehicle architecture of the future, addressing a new crashworthiness regime, whilst engineering for light weighting.
CAV vehicles have the benefit of reducing accident frequencies, severities and the level of pollution by regulating the traffic whilst increasing the vehicle throughput. From 2022, the European parliament will enforce the implementation of accident avoidance features with the view for full vehicle fleet implementation by 2045.
The aim of this PhD is to investigate automated methods for testing and predicting software reliability embedded in connected and automated vehicles.
