Autonomous-CarAn initial team of up to 20 academic staff members and doctoral research students from Coventry University alongside HORIBA MIRA’s engineering and test teams will be working on kick-off activities and projects at the Centre, which will also benefit from a range of information and communications technology and specialist laboratories. With in-house facilities combining the real and virtual worlds for CAV, the Centre will utilise a suite of simulators that interact with ‘living laboratory’ environments.

This latest strategic investment builds on existing collaborative activity between the two partners, including work with other leading industry players to test connected vehicle technology in real-world conditions; a project exploring  how connectivity will help drivers reach their destinations more efficiently and conveniently; and wide-ranging doctoral research activity exploring, amongst other things, technologies that make journeys safer, cleaner and smarter, as well as the development of more resilient cyber security systems within modern vehicles.

Dr George Gillespie OBE, CEO at HORIBA MIRA, said: “We are incredibly pleased to announce this major expansion in our partnership with Coventry University. The new centre will provide a hub for rapidly expanding the scope of the engineering and test services we offer our clients within CAV, and an environment where we can learn with our clients to ensure these new services are tailored to their needs in this fast-evolving technology area.

“The launch of this facility reiterates HORIBA MIRA’s commitment to transforming our business to meet the challenges and opportunities provided by the rapid growth of Connected and Autonomous Vehicles.”

Professor John Latham, vice-chancellor of Coventry University, said: “Our collaboration with HORIBA MIRA is part of a multi-million pound investment that Coventry University is undertaking in teaching, research and development within the transport sector. The new centre is being established to drive the high-quality, high-impact research needed to underpin UK capabilities in the development of connected and autonomous vehicle technology.

“Closer working between academia and industry is vital if we are to tackle the economic challenges facing us at both a regional and national level. We are therefore delighted to be working in partnership with HORIBA MIRA on this venture which will allow innovation, experimentation and study to happen at the same time.

“I am confident that our new centre will yield positive results both for the automotive industry and for society as a whole.”
