Annual CAPE 2-Day Event

June 22, 2016

This year’s CAPE 2-Day Event took place on 7 – 8 June at our CAPE Partner Jaguar Land Rover’s research facility in the International Digital Laboratory (IDL), Warwick Manufacturing Group, University of Warwick, Coventry.

The program started with the CAPE Steering Committee meeting on 7 June, followed by the events on 8 June: CAPE Lecture Series, CAPE Acorn Award Winners’ Presentations and CAPE Projects Review Meeting, which had a broad audience consisting of CAPE partner representatives, Jaguar Land Rover staff, Warwick University members, as well as members from the Engineering Department, Cambridge.

CAPE Lecture Series

With the support of Cambridge University Engineering Department (CUED), the CAPE Lecture Series were held outside of Cambridge for the first time in CAPE’s history. The following lectures were given by CUED academics:

1. Dr David Cole – “Driver-vehicle dynamics and the internal model hypothesis”

2. Dr Ashwin Seshia – “Vibration energy harvesting for low-power autonomous sensing”

3. Prof Jong Min Kim – “Nanotechnologies and its convergence for the applications”
