Innovative Technology Drives Vehicle Research Forward

At Loughborough University, we’re working closely with the motor industry to get the most out of powertrain technology for use in the real world.

Our research into real-world vehicle use will enable significant improvements in performance at reduced cost. In the School of Aeronautical, Automotive, Chemical and Materials Engineering, we have cutting-edge engine testing facilities, where Research Associate Thomas Childs and his team work with a view to improving fuel consumption and emissions in cars. Using modern dynamic approaches, alongside industrial partners, this video showcases a revolutionary new fuel flow measurement technology, which directly tackles one of many technological barriers to the success of the research.
