Industry-led research, bridging the gap between the lab and the marketplace to accelerate manufacturing implementation.

Brunel University London has a strong focus on engineering and solutions-based projects. It offers access to facilities and equipment at an appropriate scale for applied, industry-led research, bridging the gap between the lab and the marketplace to accelerate manufacturing implementation. This includes casting of light metals, prototype development and engine testing facilities. With world-class facilities and exceptional engineering capability, Brunel Automotive delivers outstanding research through collaborative partnerships. Its industry-focused expertise is supporting the future development of new transport technologies, helping address the challenges of producing cleaner, more efficient vehicles and fuels along with integrated intelligent transport systems, in order to position the UK as a world leader in this field.

Brunel University London has developed a novel regenerative hybrid engine system that converts the vehicle engine into an air pump during deceleration. It captures the braking energy and stores it as compressed air for subsequent use to restart the engine in stop/start operation and to augment other air systems on the vehicle.
