The project is a partnership between JLR, EPSRC, Loughborough University, University of Leeds, University of Cambridge and Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG). “These projects will help us analyse increasingly complex cars at whole vehicle, system and component levels, as well as enhancing the high performance computers that industry will use in the future to mine increasing amounts of more complex data” Jaguar Land Rover Engineering Director Bob Joyce said. The project will help manufacturers like Jaguar Land Rover deliver more complex new vehicle programmes more quickly, the company said.
