Horiba MIRA and Coventry University open autonomous research hub

LinkedIn +

Horiba MIRA has joined forces with Coventry University to open a new automotive research center dedicated to developing intelligent, connected vehicle technology.

The Centre for Connected & Autonomous Automotive Research is located on an existing site at the heart of MIRA Technology Park. Its core objectives are to provide an environment to simulate, test and evaluate the security and safety of connected autonomous vehicles (CAV); undertake research to accelerate the development of new products and services in the CAV segment; and produce a pipeline of talent to support growth of the CAV segment.

An 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 projects at the center, 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 center will utilize a suite of simulators that interact with ‘living laboratory’ environments.
