THE ENGINEERING INTEGRITY SOCIETY SEMINAR


■ Technologies for Low Carbon Transportation in New Sound Environments ■ Tuesday, 29 March 2011 9.00amto 5.00pm ■ International Digital Laboratory,WMG, University ofWarwick ■A joint EIS &WarwickWMG seminar & exhibition


Automotivemanufacturers are launching new low-carbon hybrid and electric vehicles. Although these quieter


powertrains offer enhanced vehicle refinement, problems concerning the driver experience and pedestrian safety have been introduced. Resolving these issues will


therefore call for new skills to be developed and new knowledge to be explored. This year’s EIS seminar will


provide opportunity to discuss these new concerns. Here the most recent research by academia and industry will be presented, while the latest technological developments will be on show during the accompanying exhibition.
