• The Future of Transportation - 15 January 2019

    15 January 2019
    5:30pm
    start
    4:30pm
    optional lab tours

    NPL North of England run quarterly events at the Huddersfield site - on 15 January we will be looking at 'The Future of Transportation.' The events are run through the Manufacturer Measurement Network - a network set up by NPL to support manufacturing SMEs, larger organisations, and affiliates. More information on the MMN can be found at http://www.npl.co.uk/mmn.

    Light-weighting & Composites
    Since battery and electric motor drive systems are less power-dense than internal combustion engine / conventional aero engines, the bodies of cars, trucks, aircraft and rail vehicles need to be made more lightweight. A considerable amount of funding is going into research in composites to achieve lower weight. Hear from leading scientists who are exploring how to speed up the uptake of the key technologies.

    Electric & Hybrid Propulsion
    The world is moving away from hydrocarbon fuels and moving towards electric & hybrid propulsion in road, air & rail transport. Understanding how these new technologies may impact your business and getting an understanding of where the technology is likely to go from subject specialists could help you make better decisions about the future product mix of your business.

    Autonomous Vehicles
    CAV, or Connected and Autonomous Vehicles, is the scientific name for driverless cars. Hear from a specialist about how CAV will become a reality, and the threats & opportunities it is likely to present.

    SPEAKERS INCLUDE:
    • Gareth Hinds - NPL
    • Martin Sharp - Liverpool John Moores University
    • Nigel Schofield - University of Huddersfield


    Parking is available on a first come first serve basis

    Complementary food and drink will also be available
