The annual low carbon automotive industry show, organised by Cenex, is expected to attract more than 3,000 visitors for its opportunities for networking, learn from seminars by industry leaders and observe the latest developments and opportunities in low carbon vehicle and UK government policy.
There’ll be three halls of exhibitions, exhibits outdoors on tarmac, and opportunities to drive or ride some new and exotic low carbon vehicles round Millbrook's complex of test tracks and a high speed circuit.
VR pushing the boundaries of design
DETC’s presence will be in Hall 1, alongside the stands ofInnovate UK, as well as APC and its other spokes.
We plan to show off examples of how Virtual Reality (VR) technologies can be used to push the boundaries of vehicle design, in conjunction with our affiliates Gravity Sketch, Hartree Centre and the Virtual Engineering Centre.
The exhibits will demonstrate how VR can be used in real-world engineering applications such as high fidelity engineering based computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis and design in fully immersive environments.
DETC will also be contributing to the seminar programmes of both days, and will lead a live interactive VR demonstration in the Seminar Dome on day one. In the Main Plenary Hall on 6 September 2017 Jon Horsley (DETC Programme Director) will present a talk on ‘Joining the Digital Revolution to Transform Automotive Engineering’ at the 11:00-12:15 The Automotive Council and UK Capabilities Development seminar.
On day two, 7 September 2017, at the Seminar Dome, Dr Kevin Rampersad will present as part of the Advanced Manufacturing seminar – Seminar Dome – 09:15-10:45 on ‘Vehicle Design and Analysis Using Collaborative VR’.
LCV 2016 was a high profile platform for DETC to announce funding opportunities
Last year, LCV2016 had a record 3,137 visitors, 226 exhibitors and 1180 organisations represented. As part of the Britain is GREAT pavilion DETC showcased applications of augmented reality in the automotive industry and announced the second DETC Collaborative R&D funding programme.
Register to attend LCV 2017
LCV 2017 - Cenex’s tenth annual event for low carbon vehicle manufacturers, supply chain representatives and government officials - is free for visitors to attend, from 9:00am to 5:30pm on both Wednesday 6 and Thursday 7 September 2017.
You’ll need to Register first, for the opportunity to research, network, learn about UK low carbon vehicle capabilities, and experience the technologies first hand.
DETC develops and uses virtual engineering tools and techniques to accelerate the development, test, and manufacture of automotive propulsion systems. It engages with industry and academic organisations through an affiliation model, to drive innovations in product development and manufacture of next generation propulsion systems using digital tools and techniques.
DETC is a collaborative project between, and jointly administered by, Loughborough University and High Speed Sustainable Manufacturing Institute (HSSMI). The University is grant funded by the Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) for running DETC as the digital engineering and test spoke of the Advanced Propulsion Centre.
The Centre is co-located with the APC London office and the HSSMI on the Loughborough University London campus on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
DETC affiliation is open to all and free to join.
